KISSsoft launches a new CAE software, the KISSsys based gearbox package GPK. With this, the design engineer finally has the right tool for the sizing, optimisation and rating of industrial gearboxes. Instead of working with several, independent calculations, the whole gearbox is modelled and the analysis is performed for all gears, shafts and bearing simultaneously. As expected, the resulting geometry can be exported to CAD systems such as Inventor, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, ProE, Catia via a step file. This allows for closer cooperation between analysis and design, eliminating time consuming and error prone manual data exchange between CAE and CAD software.
Integrated into gearbox package GPK is a cost analysis which allows the design engineer to keep an eye on the final costs even during initial gearbox design. Comprehensive reporting functions ensure that he can document his work quickly and according to the current quality standards.
The gearbox package GPK also supports the sales engineer as it permits for re-analysis of an existing gearbox using customer specific data within minutes. This puts the sales engineer in the favourable situation that he can answer technical questions quickly, traceable and precisely.
All calculations used within gearbox package GPK are using the well known and well trusted KISSsoft software and follow the current DIN/ISO/AGMA standards. This ensures that all calculations performed will be readily accepted by both internal and external customers. Currently, multiple stage helical gearboxes and multiple stage bevel-helical gearboxes are available, further types will follow.
