Fine Pitch Gears in Plastic and Sintered Material

The use of plastic and sintered 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. The specific differences compared to steel gears and their calculation methods will be also explained.

The training is intended for engineers who are already familiar with cylindrical gear calculations and basic functionalities of KISSsoft. If a participant has a lack of knowledge, we highly recommend going through the KISSsoft tutorials posted on our website before the training.

Dates and Times

This special training takes place in 4 sessions on 4 consecutive days.

For participants in Europe:
May 8-11, 2023: CEST 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm (Brussels)
For participants in parts of the Americas:
May 8-11, 2023: EDT 8:00 am - 12:00 pm (New York)


The specific differences compared to steel gears and their calculation methods will be explained. 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. Several exercises will be carried out to see the problems and possible solutions in practical cases.
After, each session, please allow approx. 30 min for independent completion of the exercises.

The full schedule is provided in the training program.


You will need a notebook to actively participate in the training course. It is advantageous to have 2 screens, but this is not a prerequisite.

Registration deadline: May 4, 2023

Before the start of the training, participants will receive an actual test version, electronic training documentation and an invitation link to join the Live Stream training.


Upon successful completion of the course, a certificate is issued.
