Breton SpA’s Breton Gear Suite is a complete software package featuring the company’s Gear Design and Gear CAM environments. The software is well-suited for use with Breton’s Ultrix, Xceeder, Maxima and Titan machining centers, and can be used in production of straight and helical cylindrical gears, herringbone gears, bevel gears with straight- and spiral-cut teeth in common geometries, face gears for orthogonal transmission drives, skew-axis gears, and worm gears.

Gear Design enables 3D gear model generation from a standard data sheet. Tooth contact analysis (TCA) and topical surface modifications can be performed, as well as fine tuning of top land, flank and root.

The Gear CAM environment is available in both standard and multi-touch configuration. The software enables geometry input from a 3D gear model and includes toolpath simulation and a tooth accuracy optimizer (TAO). Measurement grid analysis is also included. An interactive wizard provides tool selection and cutting strategies. Breton has collaborated with Hy-Gears to develop an application within the CAM system to enable the use of face mills in addition to traditional mills.
