e-Drive Days / Day 1 / Design of e-Drive Gears

Presented by: Brian Stringer & Dr. Aljaz Pogacnik

High rpm’s, reversal of load direction, low vibration excitation, high contact ratios, increased risk of scuffing, deformed housings ... the design, optimization and service life calculation of gears for e-drives is a world of its own. The presentation shows how individual requirements can be covered by the choice and variation of gear geometry. Parameters such as material selection or heat treatment are deliberately ignored to concentrate on gear geometry optimization, which is readily accessible to the designer. Three dimensions are addressed: macro geometry, modifications and manufacturing deviations. This presentation is rounded off with the peculiarities of strength calculation in case of frequent changes in torque direction with torque-time series measured from test rigs.

Gear Trainer Webinar: Root Shapes and Root Strength of Gears

Presented by: Hanspeter Dinner

During the gear design process, gear root shape is an important parameter. A higher root radius of gears will usually result in lower root stresses. During the manufacturing process, a higher root radius usually means a smaller tip radius of the tool (hobbing, shaping), which affects the wear of the tool and thus the overall manufacturing costs. It is also important to check, whether a final machining process like threaded wheel grinding, profile grinding or honing may negatively affect the gear root stresses due to the position and shape of the grinding notch. This and many other aspects related to it, can be further analyzed with 3D-FEM root stress calculation in KISSsoft. In this presentation, we will discuss different root shapes, the influence of manufacturing on the effective root shape and the resulting root stresses based on ISO 6336:2019 strength calculation method.
