Gearing Systems : Pressure Angle

The pressure angle of gear is the angel between the axis of transmission of the gear and the direction of the velocity of at the pitch point. For gears the pressure angle is standardized at 14.5°, 20°, and 25°. However the most common pressure angle is 20°. Mating gears must be cut to the same nominal pressure angle.
