What is Gear Generation? How are Gear Size and Shape Determined?

A gear’s basic properties are all part of its geometry, or shape. Knowing the correct term used to describe a specific component or feature of a gear allows everyone involved in the gear-making process to discuss any problems and reach effective solutions.

How and where a gear will be used determines the shape and size of the gear and its teeth. Because using a gear of the wrong shape or size can cause a finished product to fail, it is important to know and understand the terms used to design the size of a gear. These terms include: outside diameter, inside diameter, pitch diameter, diametral pitch, and circular pitch.
