Extensive expertise and state-of-the-art solutions are required for the production of e-gearboxes that offer more than the technical standard of gearboxes used in conventional combustion engines – generating grinding using small tools is one of the building blocks.
Grinding can reduce noise and vibration and can help improve gear efficiencies for electric vehicles.
PCE can produce finer detail than is possible with stamping, and there is no degradation and deformation of the metal being processed and no burrs or defects produced.
Since 1942, Jergens Manufacturing has become one of the world’s largest manufacturers of standard tooling components, vises, and other workholding equipment.
A new method was developed to generate and simulate tool paths for conventional 5-axis machines to create helical gears with crowning following the generation principle.
Power skiving with integrated tool resharpening establishes new quality and cost benchmarks, revolutionizing manufacturing process and tooling concepts for hard gear finishing.
From buzzword to buzzworthy, here’s how your business can succeed with a new revenue model.
Since 1950, REGO-FIX has offered precision toolholding solutions such as its ER collets, but the company is looking to make inroads within the gear industry with its innovative powRgrip System for 5-axis gear milling.
Due to substantial sliding in tooth contact, friction losses are an issue in worm gears, but a simulation tool can be used to study the behavior between two interacting tribological measures – friction and wear – during the running-in of worm gears.
Proper surface texture can reduce the friction of the tool-chip interface, and the cutting fluid is stored to form micro-pool lubrication, which leads to a reduction in cutting force and temperature.
Avers Machine and Gear provides its customers with a variety of precision machined components and gearing in materials including aluminum, tool steel, plastics, high-alloy steels, stainless steels, brass, and bronze with an emphasis on quality of product made to customers’ specifications.
The integration, optimization, design, and manufacturing of gears using state-of-the-art software allows cutting tools to be harmonized.
As gear production demands increase, lead times need to be decreased without compromising quality; therefore, the ability to confidently perform everything ranging from quick checks to in-depth QC inspections in seconds has never been more important.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence works with its customers to improve productivity with software solutions for gear production, including design, engineering, manufacturing, quality inspection, and more.
Using a differential gearbox design, a comparison between two popular case hardening alloy steels shows that EN 36C offers significantly better tool strength, wear resistance, and fatigue properties.
Minority-owned Preco Manufacturing achieves superior finishes for aerospace applications while overcoming V-flange CNC milling problems via JM Performance Products’ high-torque retention knobs.
