Noise and vibration in gearing are related and can be real measures of quality. Whereas noisy gears may indicate premature wear and failure, smooth and quiet operation indicates long life. A discussion of the designing of gears for quiet operation is presented, with emphasis on accuracy, precautions, and noise reducing materials considered, as well as possible sources of gear-system noise.
