Gear Design And Pneumatic Compressor Design

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I know this is more mechanical engineering than product design but does anybody know anything about either of these two areas of design? i would quite like to find some tutorials on these subjects!

 

thanks,

I had a mechanical class on linkages and gears a very long time ago, but must confess that my current knowledge of gears is woefully inadequate (and something I've been thinking about correcting). However, I might be able to provide a few answers on pneumatics and lead you to some worthwhile tutorials on the topic.

actually the product is irrelevant! i am only interested in fundamental design principles and modern implementations.

Don't know about compressors, but gears:

 

www.bostongear.com - there is much in their hardcover catalog about gear design, gear pitch, etc.

www.sme.org

http://www.cnczone.com/forums/index.php always has SOMEBODY who knows all about it.

http://www.efunda.com/home.cfm only goes so far, for free

 

Also the "Machinery's Handbook" - the one that's 4" thick and I have the 25th edition of - has all the stuff about gears and gearing...

 

Finally, start here: http://www.sdp-si.com/d785/html1/D785T000.html

Hit the "next" button, and it will go through everything you'd ever need to know about gearing....

 

(2nd edit ;<} If you go to http://www.lindsaybks.com/ , yoiu'll find many, many books for the tinkerer and wannabe engineer. Reprints of old machine design books and many others. Not college stuff mostly, but a very cool place.
