The surface of a gear with ring-involute teeth generated by a rack cutter with ring-involute teeth is a new type of gear. This paper describes a method developed from gear theory for deriving a pinion and a gear with ring-involute teeth. A gear with ring-involute teeth is regarded as an envelope to the family of rack cutter surfaces when the pinion and gear rotate for a cycle. Using a developed mathematical model, the investigation on the undercutting analysis of the proposed gear is studied. Here the kinematic errors are investigated according to the obtained geometric modelling of the designed gear meshing when assembly errors were present. Stress analysis for the proposed gear was performed. Finally, a numerical example is presented to demonstrate the geometric model of a gear with ring-involute teeth and a gear ratio of 3:2.
