GWJ Technology GmbH presents the new version of its system calculation software SystemManager as an extension of its well-known solutions eAssistant as a web solution and TBK as a classic desktop application.
Electric vehicles could represent up to 70% of all cars by 2050. To ensure the acceptance of their vibrational and acoustical characteristics, profound NVH analysis is the key to minimize vehicle excitations caused by specific e-drive transmission designs.
Design, Manufacture and Inspection in a Smart Loop
October 26, 2022
At JIMTOF 2022, from November 8 to 13, Gleason presents the latest gear design, manufacturing, and inspection systems in challenging times of transformation. Exhibits and live streams include KISSsoft’s design software release 2022, new gear chamfer cutting technologies, hard finishing of gears by superfinish honing; combination honing and polish grinding; hobbing; and gear skiving on one flexible platform, revolutionary gear metrology systems with laser scanning, sub-micron inspection and in-process gear inspection with integrated gear noise analysis.
In its largest order to date, Danish wind turbine test specialist R&D Test Systems will develop the 30 MW powertrain and gearbox test bench for ZF Wind Power’s future “Test & Prototype Center” at Lommel, Belgium, that will house the world’s most powerful validation test bench for wind turbines.
Different ways of looking at the involute and developing gears from theoretical principles can help optimize designs, especially when considering nontraditional manufacturing methods such as 3D printing or injection molding, where the tooth form doesn't need to be generated by a straight-sided cutting tool.
GROB Systems has announced a new YouTube Video Series called “Machine Minutes with GROB.” New technical tutorial and informational videos will be released regularly and will focus on three primary topics including Machine Design/ Building, Machine Applications, and Machine Maintenance and Inspection. The videos will generally range from two to eight minutes in length.
