Special Training: Contact Pattern Analysis for cylindrical, bevel and planetary gears + Workshop

This training course is designed for engineers who are already familiar with cylindrical gears and planetary gear units. The course assumes that participants know how to use the KISSsoft user interface, either because they use the software on a regular basis or because they have already attended an introductory training course. We also recommend that hey have attended our advanced training course about gear calculation before, because a good knowledge of geometry and strength calculation is essential for fully understanding the contents of this course specialized on contact pattern optimization. In order to deepen the content of the training, we offer an optional workshop. The seats for this additional day are restricted to 10.
Interested participants can ask for a 30 day test version before the training in order to become familiar with the functionalities of the optimization modules ZA30 to ZA36 that will be used in the training.

You will need a notebook to actively participate in the training course.
If you do not have a notebook, we are happy to provide one, tick the relevant part of the application form below.

Special training for gear optimization
Part 1/2

Type: Special training
Language: English
Costs: 1200 Euro


June 20 2017 | Week 25
09:00 - 17:00 | Tuesday
June 21 2017 | Week 25
09:00 - 17:00 | Wednesday
Duration: 2 Days
Topic: The first part of the training course uses the calculation of the face load factor as an introduction to the more detailed theory of contact pattern calculation. The course explains essential issues such as modeling and stiffness, and also goes into detail about how to check and interpret the results. The second part of the course covers the special topics involved in contact analysis, such as how to take into account shaft deformation and planetary gear units. Participants will then reinforce what they have learned by using the powerful sizing and optimization functions.
