An important part of “Generalized theory”, developed by the author of this article, is the “bidirectional modification” of involute gears. The main point of the proposed modification is that together with the traditional “radial modification” of the basic rack, an additional “tangential modification” of the side profiles of the rack-cutters is introduced. As a result, the area of possible existence of involute gear drives in the generalized theory is considerably extended. Based on the bidirectional modification, a new classification of involute gears at their meshing with a rack cutter is proposed. The classification is characterized by a significant variety, which is composed of thirteen different types of gears: a zero gear; two radially modified gears; two tangentially modified gears and eight two-way modified gears. Based on the bidirectional modification in radial and tangential directions, a new classification of the involute gear drives is proposed. The classification is composed of sixteen different types of gear drives: a zero gear drive, three equally-modified gear drives; two balanced gear drives; five positive gear drives and five negative gear drives.
