The authors have developed the analytical geometry of face-gear drives, proposed the method for localization of bearing contact, developed computerized simulation of meshing and bearing contact, investigated the influence of gear misalignment on the shift of bearing contact and transmission errors. Application for design is discussed. The obtained results are illustrated with numerical examples.
