  • Publication number: 20190224895
    Abstract: In a gear comprising a resin material including a fibrous filler, a plurality of teeth formed at equal angular intervals are provided to a first outer peripheral part. When the gear is manufactured, the resin material is filled from a specific portion (first toothless part) which faces in a direction orthogonal to a center axis line, and in which the teeth are not formed in a portion that overlaps the first outer peripheral part when seen from the direction orthogonal to the center axis line. Therefore, there is a gate mark in the specific portion. Between the specific portion and the center axis line, the degree to which the filler is oriented in a direction intersecting the center axis line is higher than the degree to which the filler is oriented in a direction running along the center axis line.
