With the help of KISSsoft, the user can combine the FE method with analytical models when designing a high-performance gear or drivetrain. The stiffness matrix of a gear body can be calculated accurately with KISSsoft using its advanced modeling capabilities for gear bodies. The effect of the gear body stiffness can be integrated in different KISSsoft calculations, like flank line modifications and loaded tooth contact analysis.
Croix Gear & Machining, recognized as a leader in the custom manufacturing of loose gears, is excited to announce the installation of a Gleason Phoenix II 600HC Bevel Gear Cutting Machine. This new equipment, combined with software upgrades on existing Gleason Phoenix 280c bevel gear cutting machines, will expand capacity and precision capabilities for spiral, straight, hypoid, and Zerol bevel gears.
In an urgent assignment, a gear has to be designed, with the engineer already knowing the required reduction ratio, torque and speed. On the manufacturing side, the preferred materials, possible qualities and the reference profiles are specified. This initial situation represents an everyday task.
Mechanical engineering theory, design and practice come into play for NYCU Vulpes Racing Team
April 6, 2023
NYCU (National Yang Ming Chia Tung University) Vulpes Racing—founded in 2008—is a Formula Student Team that combines mechanical engineering, industrial design, public relations, video production and marketing expertise.
The new KISSsoft release 2023 comes with numerous novelties. Among others, Gear Mesh Frequencies (GMF) can now be calculated for cylindrical and bevel gears. GMF results are visualized in two different diagrams, i.e. GMF versus rotational frequency of the reference gear, and GMF versus amplitude.
Join Gleason's special online event to learn about design, manufacturing and inspection of e-Drive gears. The three day event features one topic per day addressing the specific requirements and challenges of e-Drive transmission manufacture, with particular attention to minimizing gear noise.
KISSsoft offers the calculation of geometry and contact stresses of Hirth couplings. Hirth couplings allow for thetransmission of high torque between shafts. In KISSsoft, users can select a standard Hirth coupling offered by Voith GmbH & Co. KGaA or enter their own custom geometry for the calculation.
During this live session KISSsoft AG (a Gleason Company) and FunctionBay GmbH will present a common and continuous solution to design, analyze and optimize the NVH behavior of a gearbox used in an e-drive system.
