Precision Mechanics: Small cylindrical gears and crossed helical worm gears in plastic or sintered materials

The training focuses on the calculation of small pitch gears and their special design problems.

In the theoretical part, the specific differences to steel gears and their calculation methods are shown. Relevant plastic and sintered material data is overviewed. Procedures for measuring materials properties are discussed and the basic difference between worm wheels and crossed helical gears summarized.

The practical part consists of several exercises using the theoretical knowledge to design small pitch gears.

This training is for engineers who are already familiar with the KISSsoft user interface and have participated in the advanced training course on Gear calculation and Optimization, because a sound knowledge of geometry and strength calculation is essential for properly understanding the contents of this course.

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.
