In this latest edition, issue 10, of the GEARS inline Customer Magazine, Klingelnberg once again presents all sorts of trends and innovations from the world of gears. This time, the machine manufacturer focuses primarily on the hot topic of electromobility.
With the tenth edition of the GEARS inline customer magazine, the machine manufacturer Klingelnberg not only showcases its latest developments and products, but also presents its thoughts on the shop floor of tomorrow. “The world is changing at a rapid pace. Just step outside and look around, and you’ll realize this. We are seeing more and more electrically-driven means of transport, such as e-bikes and vehicles, and the charging stations they rely on. Digitalization has also become an integral part of our world – and yes, no one would want to give up the conveniences it brings, in our daily lives or on our shop floor,” explains Dr. Christof Gorgels, Vice President, Technology and Innovation.
In the current issue of GEARS inline, the company focuses on electric vehicles. Klingelnberg explores the ways in which this trend will impact the shop floor. The challenges for production and quality assurance are clearly evident, but there are also intelligent solutions to overcome them.
In recent years, Klingelnberg has worked continuously with its customers to analyze the challenges and incorporate them into its development process. The high standards in regard to the noise behavior of gears in electric cars are a key aspect that has come to light based on numerous discussions. This has led to new products and advances in existing products that are designed to manufacture application-specific, high-quality gears on a cost-effective basis, now and in the future.
The highest profile addition to the Klingelnberg portfolio is the Höfler R 300 Cylindrical Gear Roll Testing Machine for torsional acceleration testing of cylindrical gears. “We now like to call it ‘The Gear Noise Finder’. With the R 300, we have made it possible for the first time to move the end-of-line testing of the complete transmission to the component level directly on the shop floor. This means that noise testing of gears can be integrated into the grinding machine in a fully automated manner and a fast feedback loop can be provided to avoid high scrap costs,”says Dr. Gorgels.
