The vibration and noise of gears is one of the serious problems for devices, such as vehicles and wind turbines. The characteristics of the vibration and noise of gears are considerably affected by the tooth flank form deviation of micrometer order. The quality of product gears is controlled using a gear measuring instrument and calibrated with an involute artifact. However, the conventional calibration of the involute artifact cannot achieve a sufficient accuracy. In this report, a direct method of measuring the involute artifact using a laser interferometer is proposed. Fundamental experiments are carried out, in which the effects of the surface condition of the measured object and the effect of the driving of the artifact are investigated. It is confirmed that the proposed method enables the measurement of the detailed form of an involute tooth flank and has the potential of accomplishing a highly precise measurement of an involute artifact.
