Special Training: Precision Mechanics - Small Cylindrical and Crossed Helical Worm Gears in Plastic or Sinter Material

The use of plastic and sinter gears is often considered because of their advantages over metal gears. As they also have disadvantages like lower strength and lower manufacturing tolerances, it is important to evaluate exactly the strength and geometry of the gears before going into production. During the 2-day training, the specific differences compared to steel gears and their calculation methods will be explained.

This training is meant for design engineers who have already participated in the advanced gear calculation and optimization training and do know how to use the KISSsoft user interface and the sizing functions in the gear calculation module. 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.

Duration: 2 Days
An overview of the material properties with advantages and limitations as well as the measuring techniques will be given. The choice of the material and the calculation of the tooth form specialties will be discussed. The basic issues involved in the theory of worm wheels and crossed helical gears are summarized.
The differences between worm wheels with and without globoid form are illustrated. In addition, participants will carry out several exercises to see the problems and possible solutions in practical cases, using a full KISSsoft version.
