AGMA: American Gear Manufacturers Association

AGMA, the American Gear Manufacturers Association, is a nonprofit organization that develops and publishes standards covering the manufacturing of gears. Headquartered in Alexandria, United States, AGMA standards are spread by its over 450 member companies, located in over 30 countries. Furthering unity within its field, AGMA holds its industry's trade show, as well as an assortment of smaller conferences. AGMA also serves as the administrator for the U.S. TAGs (United States Technical Advisory Group) to ISO/TCs 14 and 60 (International Organization for Standardization/Technical Committee). Standards from AGMA are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: [email protected] or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

ANSI/AGMA 2015-1-A01

Accuracy Classification System - Tangential Measurements for Cylindrical Gears

This standard, for spur and helical gearing, correlates gear accuracy grades with gear tooth tolerances. It provides information on minimum requirements for accuracy groups as well as gear measuring practices. Annex material provides guidance on filtering and information on comparison of gear inspection methods. Users of this standard should have a copy of the companion information sheet, AGMA 915-1-A02. Revision of ANSI/AGMA 2000-A88. ISBN: 1-55589-797-5 Pages: 37

ANSI/AGMA 2000-A88

Gear Classification and Inspection Handbook - Tolerances and Measuring Methods for Unassembled Spur and Helical Gears (including Metric Equivalents)

Correlates gear quality levels with gear tooth tolerances. Provides information on manufacturing procedures, master gears, measuring methods and practices. Appendix material provides guidance on specifying levels and information on additional methods of gear inspection. Partial replacement of AGMA 390.03.

ANSI/AGMA 1010-F14 (R2020)

Appearance of Gear Teeth - Terminology of Wear and Failure

Abstract: This nomenclature standard identifies and describes the classes of common gear failures and illustrates degrees of deterioration.

ANSI/AGMA 6022-D19

Design Manual for Cylindrical Wormgearing

This design manual covers the design of fine and coarse pitch cylindrical wormgearing operating at right angles and primarily made as gear sets to be incorporated into other machines and mechanisms. Many of the design procedures are also incorporated in enclosed drives. Measurements using a double flank tester are not included (see ISO/TR 10064-2). This document only applies to involute gears.

AGMA 915-1-A02

Inspection Practices - Part 1: Cylindrical Gears - Tangential Measurements

Provides a code of practice dealing with inspection relevant to tangential element and composite deviations of cylindrical involute gears (measurements referred to single flank contact). Supplement to ANSI/AGMA 2015-1-A01. ISBN: 1-55589-798-3 Pages: 39

ANSI/AGMA 9005-F16

Industrial Gear Lubrication

This standard provides lubrication guidelines for enclosed and open gearing installed in general industrial power transmission applications. It is not intended to supplant specific instructions from the gear manufacturer.

ANSI/AGMA 2009-B01

Bevel Gear Classification, Tolerances and Measuring Methods

Correlates gear accuracy grades with gear tooth tolerances. It provides information on manufacturing practices as well as gear measuring methods and practices. Annex material provides guidance on specifying an accuracy grade and information on additional methods of gear inspection. This standard was originally listed in the June 7, 1996 issue of Standards Action. It is being resubmitted due to substantive changes to the text.

ANSI/AGMA 9002-C14

Bores and Keyways for Flexible Couplings, Inch Series

This standard presents inch dimensions, tolerances, and sizes for straight bores, tapered bores, single keys and keyways for unmounted industrial flexible couplings. The keys are square or rectangular. This specification includes index tolerances for multiple keyways. Inspection methods for straight and tapered bores and keyways are included in the annexes. The annexes also include the recommended design practice for tapered shafts for use with flexible couplings.

ANSI/AGMA 6001-F19

Design and Selection of Components for Enclosed Gear Drives

This standard outlines the basic practices for the design and selection of components, other than gearing, for use in commercial and industrial enclosed gear drives.
