Aspects of Gear Noise, Quality, and Manufacturing Technologies for Electromobility

Start 1 of the grinding worm will devolve its characteristic on tooth 1, start 2 on tooth 2, start 3 on tooth 3, and so on. When grinding the gear is finished, each flank has a slightly different surface texture and therefore the ghost orders and side bands with low amplitudes are induced in the order spectrum. With this grinding technology called Quiet Surface Shifting (QSS), it is possible to produce gears of the highest quality and improved psychoacoustic values in loudness, tonality, fluctuation strength, and sharpness resulting in less noise annoyance of transmissions.
