What's the latest in software design and simulation in the power transmission market? Here's a recap of some of the latest software solutions for bearings, gears, drivetrains and e-mobility applications.
GWJ Optimizes SystemManager
GWJ Technology GmbH introduces a new version of SystemManager as an extension of eAssistant as a web solution and TBK as a classic desktop application.
SystemManager is an easy-to-use extension of the GWJ solutions eAssistant and TBK for individual machine elements, such as shafts, bearings, connections and various gear types, for the design and optimization of gearbox systems, such as multi-stage gearboxes, power-split and manual gearboxes, etc. In the latest version of the SystemManager, template files or examples with subdirectories can be structured and also created by the user.
KISSsoft Offers Manufacturing Deviations and Flank Waviness Estimations
With the help of KISSsoft, the user can now estimate the influence of manufacturing deviation on the resulting transmission error and excitation force.
For the form deviations in the profile or flank line direction, a sinusoidal wave is applied to the theoretically ideal tooth flank. The waviness can be modified by amplitude, length and phase shift. By specifying an additional angular deviation, the total deviation is simulated.
REGENT Adopts Siemens Digital Portfolio for Seaglider
Siemens Digital Industries Software recently announced that REGENT has adopted the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of cloud-based software and services to help pioneer a new category of vehicle called the seaglider. The seaglider is a high-speed zero emission vehicle that operates exclusively over the water to drastically reduce the time and cost of moving people and goods between coastal cities.
With 40 percent of the world’s population living in coastal communities, REGENT’s electric seagliders will be the first vehicles to offer safe, low-cost, high-speed, zero-emission vehicles for this segment. As a manufacturer or OEM, REGENT's launch customers span aviation, ferry, and logistics transportation operators.
Dontyne Gears Introduces Latest Gear Design Services
Dontyne Gears continues to work with companies to complete design projects including CAD models and drawings if required. They recently purchased an Okuma Genos 5-axis to add to the Osaka Siemitsu high accuracy gear inspection center already in house for prototyping. As well as cylindrical gears it is possible to produce straight, spiral, and hypoid bevels. The work is facilitated by using Gear Production Suite from Dontyne Systems to generate tool forms, G-code, and inspection protocols which can be used by the machines.
