State of the Gear Industry – Last Chance
Your voice is important to us, and we’d like to encourage you to participate in our annual state-of-the-gear-industry survey, if you haven’t already done so.
The annual survey gives us a snapshot of how gear manufacturers are doing – financially, technologically – and in these trying times, emotionally! Your input is extremely important to us and will help us present the best possible results for the industry.
Our coverage will appear in the next issue of Gear Technology, but time to participate is running out. The survey will be closed at the end of the day on Thursday, January 28. Thank you for your help!

Forest City Gear Releases White Paper
Forest City Gear is proud to share a white paper entitled, A Note on the Design of the Gap Between Helices on a Double-helical Gear, authored by Forest City Gear Systems Engineer Andrew F. Vincent, Ph.D.
Elastomer Coupling with Fully Split Clamping Hubs
EKH elastomer couplings feature fully split clamping hubs which allow for quick lateral installation and removal between shafts without the need to move or realign the connected components. These precision machined hubs offer backlash free, low inertia torque transmission through calibrated and wear-resistant elastomer inserts.
Forging Precision to Save Time & Money
High-precision forging processes can significantly improve consistency and durability, which, in turn, can reduce required cycle times and improve part performance in the field.
When you’re looking at 100,000 runs, near-net gears require less surface stock, which, in turn, require less material and machining time. Learn how you can get more near-net value with our white paper.

Mitutoyo America Releases New MeasurLink Collection Schedule Module
Mitutoyo America Corporation is pleased to announce the release of a new module into its MeasurLink Suite.
MeasurLink’s Collection Scheduler is a module that allows the user to track measurement collection times for multiple active or suspended runs on that Real-Time station. The module displays tiles for each run and shows several color stages based on checkpoints to keep measurements on track. In addition, an email can alert the supervisor if no measurement is started within specified time.
Open Mind Introduces Latest CAD/CAM Updates to hyperMILL
Open Mind Technologies AG has introduced its latest hyperMILL 2021.1 CAD/CAM software suite which offers users new and enhanced features for efficient 3D, 5-axis and mill/turn machining. Key innovations include a new “Interactive Edit Toolpath” capability which enables toolpath editing after initial toolpath generation. Especially productive for optimizing tool and mold making, the new toolpath editing feature is easy-to-use, and offers programmers the flexibility to adapt toolpaths by trimming and removing sequences accordingly for component conditions.
