KISSsoft Training
Bevel and Hypoid Gears from Design to Manufacture

Gleason will host a 3-day, comprehensive KISSsoft Training Course at The Gleason Works facility in Rochester, NY. 

This course will give gear design engineers a basic understanding of bevel gear design and strength calculation. Regardless of your preference for dedicated bevel gear manufacturing machines or 5-axis milling centers, we will showcase different cutting methods for straight and helical bevel gears and explain how to define gear geometry, including rough and fine sizing as well as opportunities for optimization via tooth modifications. Supported by KISSdesign, we will take a foray into the calculation of EPG misalignments and show how this process can easily translate into Gleason’s GEMS Gear Engineering and Manufacturing System. Finally, we will dive into the special requirements of differential bevel gears. The course is accompanied by practical examples and small workshops to apply specific solutions “hands-on”.
