|5Axis CnC manufacturing||
HyGEARS creates machine-ready multiaxis CnC machine part programs for any supported gear type.
Any 3, 4, 5 CnC machine architecture can be supported. The part programs can be verifed on-screen
through animation and single stepping, and are then sent directly to the machine controller without the
need for user intervention. Expected surface quality, cycle time and Closed Loop are integral to
HyGEARS' 5Axis CnC interface.
|STEP Export interface||
HyGEARS provides a direct export facility to most CAD and CAM systems through a
built-in STEP interface.
|No-Tilt Spiral-Bevel gears||
HyGEARS can create generated spiral-bevel gears sets where cutter tilt is not needed to
achieve good Bearing Pattern and Transmission Error. Such tilt-less gears sets can then be
produced on almost any available 4 Axis CnC machine.
The Finite Strips are a subset of the FEA that allow ultrafast computation and display of the
bending stresses and deformations. They provide the LTCA with very precise tooth
stiffness for exact tooth load sharing calculations.
|FEA Mesh Model||
HyGEARS does not have an internal FEA solver, but the HyGEARS geometry may be used to
easily and rapidly mesh a FEA model in a standard Patran Neutral File format that may be
exported to about any FEA solver.
An integrated contact element allows the calculation and display of the contact stresses of
any tooth geometry. Surface irregularities obtained from a CMM may be accounted for
in the analysis.
