### Form Measurement:

Form Measurement Unit 3

### Syllabus :

Syllabus Measurement of screw threads-Thread gauges, floating carriage micrometer-measurement of gears-tooth thickness-constant chord and base tangent method-Gleason gear testing machine - radius measurements-surface finish, straightness, flatness and roundness measurements

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Screw thread measurement Gear measurement Radius measurement Surface Finish measurement Straightness measurement Flatness and roundness measurements.

### Terminology :

Terminology Crest It is top surface joining the two sides of thread. Flank Surface between crest and root. Root The bottom of the groove between the two flanks of the thread

### Contd.,:

Contd., Pitch The distance measured parallel to the axis from a point on a thread to the corresponding next point. Helix angle: The helix is the angle made by the helix of the thread at the pitch line with the axis. Flank angle Angle made by the flank of a thread with the perpendicular to the thread axis

### Contd.,:

Contd., Depth of thread The distance between the crest and root of the thread Major diameter: Diameter of an imaginary co-axial cylinder which would touch the crests of external or internal thread. Minor diameter (Root diameter or Core diameter): Diameter of an imaginary co-axial cylinder which would touch the roots of an external thread.

### Errors in Screw Thread :

Errors in Screw Thread Major diameter error reduction in the flank contact interference with the matching threads Minor diameter error Interference reduction of flank contact

### Contd.,:

Contd., Effective diameter error Pitch error the total length of thread engaged will be either too high or too small Flank angles error Crest and root error

### Pitch Errors Classification:

Pitch Errors Classification Progressive error Periodic error Drunken error Irregular error

Errors in Thread 1) Progressive error: The pitch of the thread is uniform but is longer or shorter its nominal value and this is called progressive error .

### Contd.,:

Contd., 2. Periodic error These error repeats itself at regular intervals along the thread. Causes of periodic error: Teeth error in gears. Lead screw error. Eccentric mounting of the gears.

Contd.,

### Contd.,:

Contd., 3) Drunken error: Drunken errors are repeated once per turn of the thread in a Drunken thread. In Drunken thread the pitch measured parallel to the thread axis. If the thread is not cut to the true helix the drunken thread error will form

### Contd.,:

Contd., 4) Irregular errors: It is vary irregular manner along the length of the thread. Irregular error causes: 1. Machine fault. 2. Non-uniformity in the material. 3. Cutting action is not correct. 4. Machining disturbances

### Measurement of the major diameter of an Internal thread::

Measurement of the major diameter of an Internal thread : The major diameter is usually measured by thread comparator fitted with ball-ended styli. First the Instrument is set for a cylindrical reference having the same diameter of major diameter of internal thread and the reading is taken. Then the floating head is retracted to engage the tips of the styli at the root of spring under pressure. For that the new reading is taken,

### Measurement of Minor diameter:

Measurement of Minor diameter The minor diameter is measured by a comparative method by using floating carriage diameter measuring machine and small ‘ V pieces which make contact with the root of the thread. These V pieces are made in several sizes, having suitable radii at the edges. V pieces are made of hardened steel. The floating carriage diameter-measuring machine is a bench micrometer mounted on a carriage.

### Measurement of Minor diameter:

Measurement of Minor diameter

### Measurement of Minor diameter:

The threaded work piece is mounted between the centers of the instrument and the.V pieces are placed on each side of the work piece and then the reading is noted. After taking this reading the work piece is then replaced by a standard reference cylindrical setting gauge. Measurement of Minor diameter

### Measurement of Minor diameter of Internal threads::

Measurement of Minor diameter of Internal threads: The Minor diameter of Internal threads are measured by 1. Using taper parallels 2. Using Rollers .

### Measurement of Minor diameter of Internal threads::

Measurement of Minor diameter of Internal threads: Using taper parallels: For diameters less than 200mm the use of Taper parallels and micrometer is very common. The taper parallels are pairs of wedges having reduced and parallel outer edges. The diameter across their outer edges can be changed by sliding them over each other.

### Measurement of Minor diameter of Internal threads::

Measurement of Minor diameter of Internal threads: Using rollers: For more than 200mm diameter this method is used. Precision rollers are inserted inside the thread and proper slip gauge is inserted between the rollers. The minor diameter is then the length of slip gauges plus twice the diameter of roller.

### Gear tooth Terminology :

Gear tooth Terminology

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Tooth profile It is the shape of any side of gear tooth in its cross section Pitch circle It is the imaginary circle of gear that rolls without slipping over the circle of its mating gear. Addendum circle The circle coincides with the crests (or) tops of teeth. Dedendum circle (or) Root circle This circle coincides with the roots (or) bottom on teeth

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Module(m) It is the ratio of pitch circle diameter to the total number of teeth Face Part of the tooth in the axial plane lying between tip circle and pitch circle. Flank Part of the tooth lying between pitch circle and root circle. Top land Top surface of a tooth

### Gear Errors:

Gear Errors Profile error The maximum distance of any point on the tooth profile form to the design profile. Pitch error Difference between actual and design pitch Cyclic error Error occurs in each revolution of gear Run out: - Total range of reading of a fixed indicator with the contact points applied to a surface rotated, without axial movement, about a fixed axis

### Gear Errors:

Gear Errors Eccentricity: - Half the radial run out Wobble Run out measured parallel to. the axis of rotation at a specified distance from the axis Radial run out Run out measured along a perpendicular to the axis of rotation.

### Pitch measurement:

Pitch measurement Point to point measurement (i.e. One tooth point to next toot point) Direct angular measurement

### Tooth to Tooth measurement:

Tooth to Tooth measurement

### Direct Angular Measurement:

Direct Angular Measurement Measuring the error by using set dial gauge against a tooth in this method the position of a suitable point on a tooth is measured after the gear has been indexed by a suitable angle If the gear is not indexed through the angular pitch the reading differs from the original reading. The difference between these is the cumulative pitch error
