A Proposed Life Calculation for Micropitting and Other Collaborations with Dave Barnett

Dontyne is pleased to announce that we have started several projects in collaboration with Dave Barnett. Dave has worked with several distinguished companies such as Westland, Eaton, and Renold Gears on a wide range of projects for spur & helical, bevel, and worm gears. The projects have often involved considering both design and manufacture for optimised production and performance which fits perfectly with the Dontyne philosophy. His experience will be invaluable to the further development of our product line.

Dave has been working on a method for calculating life for micropitting gears which goes beyond the ISO calculation, and Dontyne will be embedding this calculation into our software. More details will be published in the November/December 2011 edition of Gear Technology magazine. The calculation will be ready for the Gear Expo in Cincinnati in November along with several other new features.
