The space curve meshing wheel (SCMW) has been studied previously for small power transmission. To extend its application in conventional power transmission, the bending strength of the SCMW needs to be studied. In this paper, the tine's section of the SCMW is optimized, the mechanical model of the bending strength is deduced according to the equations for a couple of given contact curves of the SCMW, and the design formulas of the tines are newly deduced based on the equal bending strength principle. Finally, one design example of a SCMW with elliptical torus cross-section tines is provided. The result shows that the theoretical design attained from the presented formulas coincides with that from the finite element analysis. It dedicates that the SCMW possesses enough equal bending strength to be used to in conventional industrial gearing device design.
