Coniflex Pro for Differential Gear Design and Production



Coniflex Pro for Differential Gear Design and Production

Gleason's Coniflex® Pro Design and Manufacturing System is ideally suited for producing stronger, quieter, and more reliable e-drive differential gears in high volumes, for automotive, truck, bus and off-highway transmissions.

Differential gears in e-drive applications must respond to significantly increased requirements: higher bending and surface stress capabilities, higher load density, NVH considerations and noise reduction, as well as dynamic loads. With Coniflex Pro, surface stress is reduced up to 40%, root bending up to 30% compared to forged gears, resulting in higher load density and significantly extended gear life.

For e-drive disconnect transmissions NVH behavior becomes even more critical. Differential load cases are more dynamic than the formerly rather static loads. Coniflex Pro provides for lower transmission errors and excellent NVH results compared to forged gears.

Coniflex Pro relies on the proven Coniflex Plus carbide cutter system and Phoenix® bevel cutting and grinding machines for highest levels of quality and productivity. Coniflex Pro is part of Gleason’s GEMS® Design Software Suite. The Coniflex Pro app provides extended design capabilities including higher order modifications for a Closed Loop production environment.

Coniflex Pro is applicable to all types of straight bevel gears. The related processes ConifaceTM and Coniflex are applicable to face gears and clutches.
