Scuffing load capacity for bevel and hypoid gears has been implemented in KISSsoft.

July 26, 2018—
In the ISO Committee, the scuffing load capacity calculation for bevel and hypoid gears is currently in draft form, and has been implemented so in KISSsoft. This method is mainly applicable for hypoid gears, and it also takes into account effects such as the running in of GL5 oils. 

The backlash (as the tooth thickness allowance) according to ISO, Gleason and Klingelnberg is now available for bevel gears, which is especially helpful in the bevel gear design process, because the manufacturing principle is not yet defined in some cases.

KISSsoft invites gear professionals to attend the fifth SMK in Rapperswil November 27-28, where attendees can find out more about this topic. Among others, Dr. Joachim Thomas from ZG Hypoid GmbH, Frederik Mieth from the Technical University Dresden and Mr. Jürg Langhart from KISSsoft AG will give presentations on bevel gears.

In addition, there are still places open for the advanced training gear design and optimization course in taking place September 25-28. Visit the website below for details.
