The Kapp Niles ZX series provides high-end productivity, even for bigger gears and larger modules. It is driven by an electrical high-accuracy direct drive, providing a high level of positioning accuracy even for the profile grinding process.
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.
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.
This machine concept facilitates highly
productive profile grinding for large workpieces. The range for external and internal gears comprises models for manufacturing workpieces up to 2,000 millimeters – for industrial gear units, wind power, and marine propulsion applications
Instances of damage to discontinuous form ground and surface-hardened gears, especially of large scale, have recently increased. This may be attributed partly to a faulty grinding process with negative effects on the surface zones and the surface
