Event Description:

Learn How Gear Modeling in Tolerance Analysis Software Provides Real Value for Manufacturers

DCS is hosting a webinar to demonstrate how simulating fine and coarse gear models can predict misalignment, non-conformance, and risk factors that directly impact gear performance and durability. 

The focus of this event is to show both fine and coarse studies on a gear assembly, demonstrating the inputs and outputs and how they can be leveraged for reducing the risk of misalignments while minimizing variation through design iteration. This includes the analysis of tooth contact and complex gear mechanism dynamics with high accuracy, as well as how to fix issues with adjustments in bearings, shims, and pinion nut adjustment. This process provides the flexibility to make small adjustments in design that create a gear structure with minimal problems.

The use of 3DCS software can be used to assess gear backlash and mounting misalignment, perform angular backlash analysis, and create both flank test displays, and contact patterns. Using this solution integrated into the CAD platform allows for analysis of:
  • Backlash and system backlash.
  • Line of action contact.
  • Center mounting distance.
  • Mounting angles.
  • Contact pressure angles.
  • Flank contact area.
  • Radial tooth interface.
  • Radial tooth gap.
The 3D model utilizes multiple measures and analytics that compare the variation tolerances of each component and the way the finished gear mechanism works with each of these variations — individually, as they are produced, compiling the results into statistical outputs, correlated sensitivity data for identifying contributors, and risks assessments.
