Comet Solutions announced a program in support of gearbox design and manufacturing. The Comet gearbox solution, consisting of a suite of solution-specific Gearbox SimApps, will provide automated processes integrating the broad spectrum of tools frequently used throughout gearbox development—CAD, FEA, multibody dynamics, gear/bearing simulation and CFD—in order to predict and optimize performance in the areas of acoustics/vibration/dynamics, durability/reliability, efficiency, and for management of cost and weight. Developed in cooperation with ADET (Advanced Drivetrain Engineering and Technology) and utilizing SMT (Smart Manufacturing Technology) MASTA, Comet’s new Gearbox Durability SimApp will provide gearbox OEM companies the means to perform basic durability evaluations of various gearbox system designs. More information here. Run the Gearbox Durability SimApp live at Gear Expo 2015, Oct. 20-22, Cobo Center, Detroit—visit Comet and ADET in booth 1311, and SMT in booth 2207.
