Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirt. Ing Julian Staudt

Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirt.Ing. Julian Staudt in 2016 completed his doctoral thesis in production engineering — "Function-Oriented Machining of Gears by Free-Form Milling." Since 2012, Staudt was a research assistant at the chair of Manufacturing Technologies at Laboratory for Machine Tools (WZL) at RWTH Aachen University. While continuing his studies, Staudt (2007-2012) was a student worker at Laboratory of Machine Tools (WZL), concentrating on surface densification of P/M gears; condition monitoring of gears; and tool wear in bevel and hypoid gear cutting processes. While in the midst of his studies, Staudt served (2004-2005) in the German Air Force. He currently works for Saint-Gobain Sekurit — a supplier to the automotive industry.  (Bio last updated 2017-03-01 Contact Randy Stott, Managing Editor, with changes.)

  • Performance of Gears Manufactured by 5-Axis Milling (March/April 2017)
    Free form milling of gears becomes more and more important as a flexible machining process for gears. Reasons for that are high degrees of freedom as the usage of universal tool geometry and machine tools is possible. This allows flexible machining of various gear types and sizes with one manufacturing system. This paper deals with manufacturing, quality and performance of gears made by free form milling. The focus is set on specific process properties of the parts. The potential of free form milling is investigated in cutting tests of a common standard gear. The component properties are analyzed and flank load-carrying capacity of the gears is derived by running trials on back-to-back test benches. Hereby the characteristics of gears made by free form milling and capability in comparison with conventionally manufactured gears will be shown.
  • Best Tooling for Hard Milling a Gear Tooth on 5-Axis Machining Center (January/February 2017)
    What is the best tooling to use when hard milling a gear tooth on a 5-axis machining center? And what makes it the best? We have just bought a DMG Mori mono-block and are not getting the finishes at the cycle times we require.
  • Quality and Surface of Gears Manufactured by Free-Form Milling with Standard Tools (January/February 2015)
    The recently available capability for the free-form milling of gears of various gear types and sizes — all within one manufacturing system — is becoming increasingly recognized as a flexible machining process for gears.
