Klingelnberg has developed a new precision measuring center. The P 152 is the latest addition to the family of Klingelnberg precision measuring centers. It is capable of measuring components with a maximum outside diameter of 1,520 mm and workpiece weights up to 8,000 kg with the usual precision.
Different component characteristics in electric vehicles lead to higher noise and load requirements in the automotive industry. E-mobility—to a certain degree—is changing how gear analysis and inspection is carried out. Dissecting noise issues in gears and gearboxes requires an analytical approach like a detective. The problem could stem from the design itself, tolerancing or tip/root relief issues, tooth flank form deviations like waviness or perhaps crowning issues that directly impact noise. Every aspect of gear production needs to be examined to provide the most accurate results.
Within the last decade, hard finishing technologies become highly relevant. Increasing the power density of a gearbox requires precisely machined gears without heat distortions. Especially in noise-sensitive applications, both honing and grinding are often applied.
The 34th annual Control 2022 international trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany, is the place to be when it comes to measuring and test technology, materials testing, analysis equipment, vision technology, image processing, and sensor technology, as well as weighing and counting technology. The exhibitor forum will provide expert visitors with the opportunity of finding out more about the product and service portfolios and the technological expertise offered by individual companies such as Gleason and Klingelnberg, which will both debut new solutions from their portfolios.
From April to June 2022, prospective attendees will again have the opportunity to learn about current trends and the latest happenings at Klingelnberg. After so many exhibitions were canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, Klingelnberg took the initiative of launching its own WebSeminar series.
It’s that time of year again! Pandemic fears, supply chain issues, economic growth sprinkled in with some economic uncertainty. Every year, we take an in-depth look at the State of the Gear Industry and every year provides an interesting and colorful array of challenges, surprises and new innovations. Gear Technology spoke with Prasad Kizhakel, Chief Sales Officer at the Klingelnberg Group, Udo Stolz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Gleason Corporation, and Shane Hollingsworth, Vice President Sales at Kapp Technologies to assess what the next five years in gear manufacturing may look like from the machine tool providers
