Contact analysis can be used to calculate the transmission error and determine the profile modifications of a gear stage. In addition, a wide range of important gear-specific parameters can be calculated, such as tooth root stress, distribution of Hertzian pressure, oil film thickness, and many more.
State of the Gear Industry Perspectives takes an in-depth look at the challenges and opportunities in gear manufacturing today and in the future. Our first installment online is an interview with Udo Stolz, vice president of sales and marketing at Gleason Corporation.
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.
Strength rating of bevel gears according to standards such as ISO, AGMA, etc. is executed based on virtual cylindrical gears, only modified by a few specific bevel gear factors. The rating methods of these standards also include the calculation of permissible stresses and finally result in safety factors.
The calculation program KISSsoft and its system add-on are used in a wide variety of applications: They are used for industrial gear units, the automotive industry, the energy sector, aerospace, shipping and numerous other special fields.
KISSsoft is a well-known software system that addresses gear manufacturing as a holistic process. With over 4,000 licenses sold worldwide, its functionality is dedicated to gear manufacturing and gear inspection and makes it easier for engineers—in the areas of calculation, manufacturing, and quality assurance—to collaborate and exchange data.
In the KISSsoft training program until summer 2023, you will find introductory training courses, advanced training courses and special training courses on selected topics. KISSsoft will be offering training in Bubikon, Switzerland and live streams, which will allow you flexibility and planning security, as well as the opportunity to interactively ask questions and participate in discussions in a virtual setting.
