Dontyne Gears is looking forward to IMTS to promote the company’s range of gear design services developed during COVID restrictions. 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.
When software goes bad, what do we call it? System failure? Human failure? A virus? A number of words will work. How about this? Glitch. It has that onomatopoeic quality that fairly screams, Downtime! And with good reason -- software-generated miscalculations can have very expensive -- if not perilous -- repercussions.
