Abstract

A roller rack pinion (RRP) system, which consists of a rack-bar and a cam pinion, transforms a rotation motion into a linear one. The rack-bar has a series of roller trains, and meshes with the cam pinion. This paper first proposes the exact tooth profile of the cam pinion and the non-undercut condition to satisfy the required performance by introducing the profile shift coefficient. The paper then investigates the load stress factors under various shape design parameters to predict the gear surface fatigue limit, which was strongly related to the gear noise and vibration at the contact patch. The results show that the pitting life can be extended significantly with an increase in the profile shift coefficient.
