In Reply to: meshing Gleason system bevels with a revacycle bevel posted by Mike P. on July 14, 2015 at 06:26:54:
The main differences between the Revacycle system and the standard Gleason straight bevel include profile angle (typically approaching 22.5), tooth height coefficient (typically around 0.8), root and tip angles calculation and the gap taper type because of the fact that both gears are machined in Duplex mode. The flanks are approximated with variable radius circular arcs because of tool related issues. The initial gear geometry is modified heavily in order to find an acceptable tool geometry solution.
A Revacycle gear will mesh correctly only with the one and only mating Revacycle gear.
