Design Example
Design spur gear and pinion to be used as a part of the drive for a chipper to prepare pulp wood for use in a paper mill. Intermittent use is expected. An electric motor transmits 3.0 horsepower to the pinion at 1750 rpm and the gear must rotate between 460 and 465 rpm. A compact design is desired.

Important Information
Spur gear Drive: Uniform (3hp), Driven: heavy shock
Overload factor, Ko=1.75 Design power, p = Kox3=5.25

Gear ratio 1750/460 = 3.8 Compact design
