Gleason e-Drive Days with KISSsoft, April 26th, 2022

Presented by: Dr. Aljaž Pogačnik

The three-day event featured one topic per day addressing the specific requirements and challenges of e-drive transmissions, with particular attention to minimizing gear noise.

The first day was dedicated to the design of e-drive transmissions and looked at several aspects of gear design in an EV system environment. High rpm’s, reversal of load direction, low vibration excitation, high contact ratios, increased risk of scuffing, deformed housings - the design, optimization and service life calculation of gears for e-drives is a world of its own.

KISSsoft for Manufacturing, December 07th, 2021

Presented by: Msc. Eng. Ilja Tsikur, Dipl. Ing. Jürg Langhart

We will present various applications and provide an overview of the functionalities for manufacturing in KISSsoft:

• Design tools with protuberance, semi-toppings and modified pressure angle
• Calculate tooth thickness dimensions for span widths, measurement over balls and graphical evaluation
• Collision check for power skiving and honing
• Evaluate grinding notches and tooth root stresses
• Calculate noise excitation from manufacturing simulation or measured gears
• Manufacture non-evolute gears such as park lock gears or sprocket gears

Please take 60 minutes time for this web demo.

Plastic Gears and Tooth Form Aspects, February 23rd, 2021

Presented by: Dipl.-Ing. Hanspeter Dinner and MSc. Eng. Ilja Tsikur

Plastic gears offer the engineer more freedom to influence the tooth form, since they are usually manufactured using injection molding instead of hobbing processes. In this web demo, we will show you the options in KISSsoft for designing plastic gears.

NVH with KISSsoft and RecurDyn, December 08th, 2020

Presented by: Dipl. Ing. Jürg Langhart

The simulation of the NVH behavior is essential for certain types of gears and contributes significantly to the evaluation of gear optimization. The forced vibrations arise from the excitation in the gear mesh and are transmitted to the housing as variable forces and moments at the bearings. The radiated power is determined enabling an assessment of the noise behavior of the transmission.

Rainflow-Simulation, August 18th, 2020

Presented by: Dr. Michael Stangl

Process-dependent load spectra are often used for strength assessment of gears. Measured data as time series are then to be converted into a load spectrum. If the time series do not contain load reversal, the "Simple Count" method can be used.
