  • Cyber Physical Gear Production System: A Vision of Industry 4.0 Gear Production (January/February 2018)
    This report describes Klingelnberg's vision of Industry 4.0 gear production.
  • Optimal Flank Forms for Large Bevel Gears (November/December 2016)
    At first sight the appearance of 5-axis milling for bevel gears opens new possibilities in flank form design. Since in comparison to existing machining methods applying cutter heads no kinematic restrictions exist for 5-axis milling technology, any flank form can be machined. Nevertheless the basic requirements for bevel gears did not change. Specifications and functional requirements like load carrying capacity and running behavior are still increasing demands for design and manufacturing. This paper describes the demands for gear design and gives an overview about different design principles in the context of the surrounding periphery of the gear set.
