Gleason USA offers KISSsys class


From August 27-31, 2018, Gleason USA hosts a 4.5-day comprehensive KISSsoft and KISSsys training, split into two parts:

Basic KISSsoft Training (2 days)
August 27-28, 2018

This Basic KISSsoft Training covers shaft and gears and focuses on the usage of the software and exercises executed by the participants. After an introduction to general settings and some basic theory to develop an understanding of the technical terms, participants will learn about shaft and bearing functionalities as well as gear design and optimization strategies including optimal load distribution and noise reduction.

KISSsys Gearbox Training (2.5 days)
August 29-31, 2018
Participants will design a KISSsys model of an existing bevel-cylindrical-planetary transmission of 450kW and optimizing the gears, analyzing the strength of shafts and lifetimes of bearings as well as efficiency and contact analysis calculation. Part 1 will focus on modeling the kinematic structure of the transmission in KISSsys, part 2 will focus on dimensioning and optimization by modification of the gears, shafts, and bearings.

These courses are suitable for engineers working in the field of gearbox and transmission calculations and manufacturing. No advanced KISSsoft software knowledge is required. Participants may ask for a 30-day valid test version in order to familiarize themselves with KISSsoft/KISSsys.

The training is at The Gleason Works Facility in Rochester, New York. Please don’t miss this opportunity and register now.
