In order to achieve the required gear quality for modern transmissions, a hard finishing operation of the tooth flanks is often essential. In mass production of small and medium size gears continuous generating grinding is a very productive and therefore economic gear manufacturing process. Opposed, for small lot sizes as e. g. with large module gears the discontinuous gear profile grinding with dressable grinding wheels is a good alternative due to its high flexibility.
