Based on the face-gear generation process, the analytical geometry of face-gear drive with its mathematical model for tooth contact analysis of face-gear and spur pinion meshing was derived. In this paper, contact path and transmission error due to assembly misalignment were analyzed by using the proposed mathematical model and the tooth contact analysis. The effect of assembly error along the axis of face-gear, misalignment of crossed and angular displacement between axes of spur pinion and face-gear were all investigated. The results are illustrated by several examples.
