In this paper, we propose a design method which minimize the geometric volume of hypoid gears, considering the strength, durability, undercut, and other design constraints. We applied the developed design method to the design of the hypoid gear in the final drive of industrial vehicle, and obtained an optimal dimension which minimized the geometric volume of equivalent pitch cylinder of the hypoid gear. It can be expected from the result that the method would be used for highly reliable design of hypoid gears with minimum weight and compact volume.
