REXS 1.2 Published

The new release makes it possible to describe even more gearbox elements and thus more complex gear unit structures in detail.

Version 1.2 of REXS, the standardized interface for the simple exchange of gearbox data, was released on 23 December, 2019.

New in REXS 1.2

Modeling of flank modifications and deviations

Exact knowledge of the microgeometry of cylindrical gears is essential for simulation of the tooth contact and all subsequent analyses. With REXS 1.2, cylindrical gear geometry can be described in even more detail. In particular, it is now possible to map all common standard as well as topographical flank modifications.

Modeling of worm gear stages

As of now, worm gear stages, and thus an even wider range of gear structures, can be mapped in REXS.

Parametric struts in planet carriers

The parametric modeling of struts increases the analytical modeling options for planet carriers in REXS.

REXS in the FVA-Workbench 6.0

Version 1.2 of the REXS interface will be supported in release 6.0 of the FVA-Workbench, FVA's drive technology simulation platform.
