Finish roll forming under the constant center distance by forced feed of tool can be conceived as a method of eliminating errors in conventional form rolling under constant loads. This method generates a high-precision tooth profile by low-speed form rolling when a high rigid screw or cam is used as loading parts. In this study, the high-speed rolling conditions of this method for necessary to be applied in practical situations are discussed. The following conclusions are obtained. When the following design data are given (module, number of teeth, addendum modification coefficient, prescribed design precision, and material characteristics), the accuracy of rolled gear can be predicted from the relationship between the required feed for the tool and the theoretically calculated plastic deformation on the tooth profile. These conclusions are verified experimentally. For example, the tooth accuracy of rolled gears with module 5 can improve from JIS class 3 to JIS class 0 or 1 when the load Fmax is 4 to 5kN and the pitch line velocity is 7 m/min.
