  • Reducing Gear Rattle
  • Bourn & Koch ...67
  • Hanik Corporation ...67

The professionals at Muncie Power Products help

you to address—and eliminate—gear noise/rattle

one step at a time.

By Mikel Janitz

CreAting A bAseLine

The first step in the process was to create

a baseline. Baseline noise testing was con-

ducted on a diesel-powered Class 3 cab with

an automatic transmission (refer to the graph

accompanying this article for details). Before

the gear set was mounted measurements for

external backlash, gear quality, internal back-

lash, and endplay were recorded. All improve-

ments are based on these measurements. The

gear set was run at idle—approximately 700

rpm—the noise level recorded, and a baseline

established. The red line on the graph repre-

sents the unacceptable sound level from that

test. From this point the team started working

on particular features to improve or reduce

noise and rattle one step at a time.

Now let’s look at the graph, which depicts

the impact on noise level as each feature is

addressed. As you can see the baseline is

well above the acceptable level. The noise

was unacceptable to customers due to many

factors, including excessive backlash between

the transmission output gear and the input

gear, reduced gear quality, smaller gear pitch,

high internal backlash between gears, gear

centerlines at top of tolerance, and high bear-

ing endplay. One additional feature affecting

noise is the presence of drag, or the lack of

sufficient drag, which impacts noise and rattle

in any form. Drag will be discussed last.

It is also noted here that the graph indicates

that the features are additive. Each feature

can therefore reduce noise by some amount.

Noise can also be reduced proportionally

to the number of features improved. It was

discovered that one can change features, but

the backlash between the transmission gear

and gear set must be addressed first or the

other steps have minimal impact. The design

of backlash has its limitations. Consequently,

backlash is controlled at installation and

during gasket selection. Care must be taken

to properly mount, install the gear set, and

torque the fasteners to achieve optimal noise

levels. This is in the control of the installer at

this point.

After reducing the backlash between the

transmission and gear set, the next feature

worked on was gear quality. Improving gear

quality can be costly. It is important to under-

stand the relationship of manufacturing cost

vs. reduced noise. It was demonstrated that

higher gear quality and gear pitch reduced

noise. The reduction was not only measur-

able, but also detectible to the human ear.

Note that the gear quality went from a base-

line of AGMA 8 to AGMA 10. Gear quality was

the second-highest contributor to reduce

noise, and therefore the second feature on

the graph.

ControLLing bACkLAsh

The next step taken to reduce noise focused

on internal backlash and centerline control.

These are combined since they are so closely

related. This is a cost-effective means to

reduce noise. Accurate CNC equipment,

programming, and tooling must be used

in manufacturing to hold and repeat tight

centerline tolerances. Testing indicated

that it is necessary to control internal

backlash before moving to the next step. It

is important to specify and control internal

backlash, but the results show that this

had little effect in reducing rattle and noise

that is detectible to the human ear. This

was an important finding, but this step had

the smallest impact on reducing noise of

all those we addressed.

Rattle and noise create sound waves

that we feel and hear. The waves of sound

come from vibration between the gear,

shaft, and bearing set. If the bearing set is

loose—excessive endplay >.003, for exam-

ple—the vibrations are more pronounced,

and the noise is noticeably louder. Rattle

is a huge customer dissatisfaction issue.

If the endplay is reduced, the noise is

reduced proportionally. The baseline end-

play was excessive, and consequently the

noise was unacceptable. When the end-

play was reduced by 25 percent, the noise

was reduced as well. Endplay cannot be

completely eliminated, however, therefore

rattle cannot be completely eliminated. If

it were, bearings would burn up, and then

you have a completely different issue to

cab with an automatic transmission.

contend with. Bearings need to be sized

properly, lubricated appropriately, and

allowed to expand while in use. Endplay is

last on the list to address, but there are

other issues impacting rattle including gear

size, inertia, weight, material, and geom-

etry, just to name a few. These features

were not addressed at present, as it would

require significant time with simulation and

3D modeling to go down that path.

introDuCing DrAg

The last feature studied was the effect of

drag on the noise in a gear train. In the

graph the orange line represents the base-

line gear set with the addition of drag only.

A drag element by itself will reduce noise

if the drag force is significant enough. A

drag element in series with other features

discussed will reduce noise, as well. The

downside of introducing a drag element is

the inefficiency it creates. It creates heat

and requires power (uses fuel) to overcome

resistance forces. The graph also indicates

that noise was at an acceptable level with

only a drag element without other features


The question then becomes whether the

inefficacies can be tolerated, and can oper-

ating costs justify the reduction in noise?

Drag can come in many forms; for example,

tight bearings, excessive hydraulic fluid

levels, friction between clutch plates, and

shaft loads. Other designed parts can be

introduced to create drag, as well. Drag

was last on the list to work on because of

the negative aspects associated with it.

The graph shows noise can be reduced to

acceptable levels without drag, but it also

shows that noise can be reduced by doing

nothing other than adding drag.


Noise and rattle are big customer concerns

today. Gear manufacturers and users of

gear sets are working together to bal-

ance noise, rattle, and efficiency, as well

as cost. Product design engineers are

working with manufacturing engineers to

produce the most-quiet gear set economi-

cally available. And test engineers and lab

technicians will keep testing and reporting

results so that we can continually improve

customer satisfaction.

twin Cutter Boring System from BIG Kaiser

BIG Kaiser’s 319 SW series is an excep-
tionally rigid, new style, twin cutter rough
boring system. These corrosion-resistant
boring heads offer a unique feature; by
simply reversing the insert holders, users

cutting. The 319 SW series will replace the
older 314 RW series. By not introducing
additional components or having to manually
adjust insert height for different roughing
methods, the 319 series reduces setup time
and eliminates the need for a presetter due
to fixed tool heights and a diameter scale on
the tool. With a diameter range .787”-8.000”
the tools utilize standard carbide inserts (CC,
SC, and SP) and provide coolant-through
direct to the cutting edge to improve chip
evacuation and lengthen tool life. Call (847)

start measuring immediately. The abso-

lute encoders provide probing volumetric

accuracy down to ±0.023mm depending

on the model. The articulating arm also

features low profile, Zero-G counterbal-

ance to stabilize its weight for one-handed

operation and effortless control above

and below its centerline.

ROMER’s tube inspection system uti-

lizes the Data Overlay Camera System

(DOCS) software platform. Pictures can

be taken with the arm’s onboard digital

camera, and DOCS overlays the tube wire

frame onto the digital picture. This enables

the inspection report to show exactly how

the tube was supported or fixtured during

measurement. DOCS communicates with

most CNC bender interfaces, so corrected

bend data can be sent directly to the CNC

bending machine, reducing the process

of trial and error associated with manual

measurements. DOCS user training is

generally two days, as compared to five to

six days for traditional CMM software.

Hexagon Metrology serves the high

precision measurement and inspection

needs of worldwide manufacturers with its

extensive line of metrology hardware, soft-

ware, accessories and customer services.

Siemens to Service electric arc
furnaces in United States

Siemens Industry’s Metallurgical Services

Offline Maintenance business segment

announces they are providing support,

repair, and fabrication of Electric Arc

Furnace (EAF) components from its Milan,

Ohio, facility. EAFs are used to recy-

cle scrap metals into usable product.

Siemens is now the first EAF original

equipment manufacturer to offer these

services within the United States.

Siemens also produces EAF equipment

from its facility located in Monterrey,

Mexico, and will continue to use both

plants based on the needs of its custom-

ers. However, this location addition allows

Siemens to offer its domestic customers

several advantageous benefits, including

reduced logistical obstacles in freight

costs, customs clearance, and transit

time which in the past often made repair

jobs cost-prohibitive. By manufacturing

EAF components such as water-cooled

panels, as well as offering service repair,

from its northwest Ohio facility, Siemens

can provide shorter turnaround times and

varying cost-effective savings for custom-

ers based in the United States.

“The strategy of an OEM offering these

services domestically is a great step for

Siemens,” says Robert Strain, account

manager for Siemens Metallurgical

Services. “We’ve already seen a signifi-

cant increase in lower volume and short

lead time water-cooled panel orders, not

to mention inspection and repair projects.

Customers appreciate having the option

Danfoss Re-approved as authorized CeU provider

Danfoss VLT Drives has been re-approved by the International Association for Continuing

Education and Training (IACET) as an Authorized Provider of Continuing Education Units

(CEUs). The recognition period extends for five years and includes all programs offered

or created during that time.

“Danfoss is proud of our education programs, which train more than 1,000 partici-

pants each year in all aspects of selecting, installation, commissioning, and servicing

Danfoss VLT Drive products so they have the competency and skills to effectively and

efficiently utilize our technology to its maximum potential,” says Jeff Duncan, marketing

manager. “Our continued partnership with IACET is a demonstration of our commitment

to lifelong learning and high standards for all of our programs, and we are very pleased to

maintain our relationship with such a prestigious organization as well as an elite group of

organizations that offer excellent continuing education and training programs.”

“We are pleased to have Danfoss continue their continuing education and training work

as an Authorized Provider organization,” says Karen Niles, president of IACET and direc-

tor of professional development at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

“Danfoss is one of nearly 650 organizations around the globe that have had their pro-

grams vetted by third-party experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible

standards are met.”

In order to achieve Authorized Provider status Danfoss completed a rigorous applica-

tion process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, and successfully demonstrated

adherence to the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 standard addressing the design, development,

administration, and evaluation of its programs. Danfoss has pledged its continued com-

pliance with the standard, and maintains its authorization to use the IACET name and

Authorized Provider logo on promotional course material. In addition, Danfoss is now

linked to the IACET Web site and is recognized as offering the highest quality continuing

education and training programs.

The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) is a non-profit

association dedicated to quality continuing education and training programs. IACET is the

only standard-setting organization approved by the American National Standards Institute

(ANSI) for continuing education and training. The ANSI/IACET 1-2007 standard is the core

of thousands of educational programs worldwide. Learn more at [www.iacet.org].

Danfoss is a leading manufacturer of precision mechanical and electrical components,

with locations in more than 120 countries. In addition to setting the standard for high-

performance quality variable frequency drives, Danfoss meets the needs of its custom-

ers through its EnVisioneering partnerships, focusing on developing new technologies

for sustainable business growth through engineering innovation, energy efficiency, and

environmental responsibility. Go online to [www.danfossdrives.com].

StRato-apex CMM from Mitutoyo

The new STRATO-Apex® coordinate measuring machine from Mitutoyo

America Corporation combines an advanced structure with newly devel-

oped high-performance control and scanning technologies. The result is

faster drive speeds, higher acceleration, and a CMM that is a productivity

leader in the 1µm class. The extremely rigid STRATO-Apex CMM structure

incorporates vibration-dampening, auto-leveling air springs and the newest

compensation technology to support acceleration of 2,598mm/s2 (3D),

0.23g (3D) and measuring scan speeds up to 3mm/s.

The STRATO-Apex features digital servo system control loops for posi-

tion, speed, and current. This makes it easy to implement various types

of control algorithms. Additionally, the digital servo system has a wide

dynamic range and is highly resistant to drift over time. The controller is

located outside the main unit to mitigate the effect of generated heat.

The ultra-high accuracy measurement units installed on each axis of the

STRATO-Apex consist of high-performance reflective linear encoders that

utilize ultra-high precision crystallized glass scales, which exhibit virtually

no thermal expansion (coefficient of linear expansion of 0.01 x 10-5/°C).

The available software options enable the STRATO-Apex to tackle a

wide variety of measurement applications. Software packages include

GEOPAK®, a high-functionality general-purpose measurement program

which is at the heart of MCOSMOS® (Mitutoyo Controlled Open System

for Modular Operation Support) software. MCOSMOS supports virtually

every CAD format while providing routines for in-line measurement, data

feedback, and process management. Additional software supported

includes: CAT1000S® for freeform surface evaluation; CAT1000P®, an

offline teaching program; SCANPAK®, for contour measurement; and a

wide variety of programs supporting laser and vision probes. Additionally,

STRATO-Apex supports MeasurLink STATMeasure Plus®, Mitutoyo’s pro-

prietary statistical-processing and process-control program. MeasurLink

STATMeasure Plus performs statistical analysis and provides real-time

display of measurement results for SPC applications. The program can

also be linked to a higher-level network environment for enterprise-wide
