Two software solutions — one system design data interface

KISSsys is KISSsoft‘s system add-on that enables businesses to model complete gear units and drive trains. KISSsoft calculates the service life and strength of the different machine elements, and transfers the results to KISSsys, where they are displayed in clear overviews. To achieve this, KISSsys brings together kinematic analysis, service life calculation, 3D graphics, and user-defined tables and dialogs.

GEMS and KISSsys programs are linked by a direct interface to exchange gear tooth and system design data between the two software packages. GEMS supplies the values for the geometry data of the bevel gear pair, which is imported into KISSsys. KISSsoft determines the EPG misalignments for the specified load points. (Courtesy: KISSsoft)

With GEMS™ Gleason has introduced the next-generation design and manufacturing system for bevel gears. It is a powerful new software platform that provides highly desirable gear design and analysis capabilities, and seamlessly connects with all existing Gleason design software. GEMS helps optimize the complete bevel-gear manufacturing process — from the idea to the finished, tested gear. 

GEMS & KISSsys programs are now linked by a direct interface to exchange gear tooth and system design data between the two software packages. GEMS supplies the values for the geometry data of the bevel gear pair, which is imported into KISSsys. KISSsoft determines the EPG misalignments for the specified load points, taking shaft-bending values into account. Results are transferred to GEMS, which carries out a comprehensive contact analysis.

This interface was presented for the first time at the EMO 2017 in Hannover.
