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.
Design, Manufacture and Inspection in a Smart Loop
October 26, 2022
At JIMTOF 2022, from November 8 to 13, Gleason presents the latest gear design, manufacturing, and inspection systems in challenging times of transformation. Exhibits and live streams include KISSsoft’s design software release 2022, new gear chamfer cutting technologies, hard finishing of gears by superfinish honing; combination honing and polish grinding; hobbing; and gear skiving on one flexible platform, revolutionary gear metrology systems with laser scanning, sub-micron inspection and in-process gear inspection with integrated gear noise analysis.
The fascination of the automotive differential has led to the idea to build a second differential unit around a first center unit. Both units have the same axes around which they rotate with different speeds. The potential of double differentials as ultrahigh reduction speed reducers is significant. Only the tooth-count of the gears in the outer differential unit must be changed in order to achieve ratios between 5 and 80 without a noticeable change of the transmission size.
It is with great sadness Gleason Corporation announces the passing of James S. Gleason, a Gleason board member and former chairman and CEO of the company who died on June 17th at the age of 88 years old. Jim, a great grandson of the company’s founder William Gleason, contributed to the company in various roles, continuing to serve as a director on the board up until his death.
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.
With its brand-new 300GMS nano Gear Metrology System, Gleason presents a world- first at Control Show 2022, May 03-06, Stuttgart, Germany. The capability of measuring gears at sub-micron level, executing advanced waviness analysis and evaluating gear noise using the most advanced analytical tools, make the 300GMS nano ideally suited to support automotive e-drive production with minimum noise requirements.
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.
