Abstract. The possibilities of gears with the use of the simplest surfaces - the plane, the cylinder and their various combinations — as working surfaces of the teeth are analyzed. It is shown that with such simple outlines of the teeth it is possible to obtain a high-quality transmission. The resulting values of position and gear ratio errors are minimal and in the case of multi-row transmissions can be negligible. Calculations of the kinematic parameters of the proposed engagement options are made. The prospects of using gears with the simplest outlines of teeth are associated with the absence of the need for complex processing equipment and the possibility of manufacturing and repairing in the field.
Keywords: gearing, non-involuntary gearing, gearing simulation, approximate gears, tooth frequency error, bezel contact, multi-row transmission
