Gear technology – for design, analysis and optimisation
- Interface with the Gleason GEMS platform
- Advanced root stress analysis
- Improved gear design workflow including tolerances and asymmetric gears
- Combined shear stress plot for gear contact
In partnership with Gleason, R18 offers data exchange between RomaxDESIGNER and the Gleason GEMS platform, enabling more system-based calculations to inform effective gear design and optimisation for bevel and hypoid gears.
R18 extends Romax’s advanced root stress capability, with batch running, multi-mesh analysis and inclusion of thermal and centrifugal effects enabling in-depth durability analysis for high performance, high speed, lightweight gears.
Further capabilities for the design of high performance gears include asymmetric gear tooth design for strength and efficiency, improved tolerancing analysis for design robustness and combined shear stress analysis for optimising surface finish.
