Gear failure

  • Gears generally fail either through excessive wear or breakage.  Excessive wear is generally found to be a result of either deficiencies in, or contamination of the lubricant, or poor manufacture or setup of the gears.  Breakage is generally a result of overloading due to poor design or manufacture of the gear teeth, foreign material entering the meshing region or shock loading in the system due to improper setup or operation.
