The already existing "Parallel Shaft Assistant" can now – along with spur and helical gear
stages – also create bevel, worm and crossed helical gear stages. The modeling process itself is also made more intuitive, the user is guided step by step through the entire gear box structure.
New: The "Planetary Gear Stage Assistant" is implemented. The user is guided explicitly step by step through the kinematic structure. From the sun to the planet carrier - no element is left out, the modeling process is accomplished directly with coaxial shafts.
Following the modeling, the rough sizing of the gears can be carried out in KISSsys. This feature is available for cylindrical and bevel, worm and crossed helical gears as well as planetary gear units.

The VDI 2736 covers plastic gears and is replacing the withdrawn guideline VDI 2545. Newly added are steel worms paired with plastic gears, for which a safety against root shear stress and the flank pressure are calculated. Considering cylindrical gears now also the wear is determined. Part 2 (load capacity of cylindrical gears) and part 3 (load capacity of worm gears) are already published as official drafts. Part 1 (materials and manufacturing) and part 4 (conducting and aanalyzing of material measurements) should be available at the end of this year or early next year.
We are pleased to have hosted this successful meeting full of impulses!

The standard contains not only the safety calculations for root and flank fatigue but also the safety calculation for achieving a required hardening depth. This valuable information is now available in KISSsoft for other calculation methods too.
Another special feature is the detailed material properties in limited life strength and the possibility to consider peak loads.

The full nonlinear stiffness of rolling bearings will be modeled and used within the Adams/Machinery environment, utilizing KISSsoft's expertise, and will be a guarantee for quality, accuracy of results, and speed of calculation.
We are pleased to welcome our newest Technology Partner: MSC Software!

One of the assistants guides the user step by step through the entire process of building a cylindrical gearbox. Furthermore, the KISSsys assistants support in calculating gears and shafts. Further assistants are scheduled for the Release 03/2013.
Finally, all KISSsys tables have been improved in terms of formatting usability such as font, background and text items, which leads to higher clarity and better user-friendliness.
At this point, we want to thank all our customers, partners and friends for a successful 2012 and the confidence - we look forward to further cooperation!

The geometry shapes are determined as defined in the Draft of ISO/DTR 10828.2. This technical report contains the definition of several – in the industry commonly applied – profile types A, I, N, K, and C (Cavex).
Furthermore, with the graphical contact analysis the contact situation can be verified and optimized using tool modifications.
Have a look at our tutorial 16 about the worm gear calculation or ask us for the specific tutorial for 3D modelling with graphical contact analysis.

The basis for the load distribution calculation of cylindrical gears is the shaft deformation. While Part 1 of the ISO Norm 6336 does provide only rough classifications for shaft deflection, the Annex E allows to specify the exact value - manually or in KISSsys. The accurate determination of the load distribution forms the basis for an appropriate tooth correction.
In the advanced training courses of KISSsoft tooth corrections are covered extensively.
