  • 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.
  • Process Model for Honing Larger Gears (November/December 2015)
    Hard finishing technology, e.g. — honing — is used to manufacture high-performance gears. Gear honing is primarily used to hard finish small- and medium-sized automotive gears. And yet trials have shown that gears with a module larger than mn = 4 mm can also be honed efficiently, but problems often occur due to unstable process design. In this paper a model to improve the process design is described.
  • Local Simulation of the Specific Material Removal Rate for Generating Gear Grinding (September/October 2015)
    Generating gear grinding is one of the most important finishing processes for small and medium-sized gears, its process design often determined by practical knowledge. Therefore a manufacturing simulation with the capability to calculate key values for the process — such as the specific material removal rate — is developed here. Indeed, this paper presents first results of a model for a local analysis of the value. Additionally, an empirical formula — based on a multiple regression model for a global value describing the process — is provided.
  • 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.
