Gear Optimization 

Below is an example of our analysis on a customer’s existing design which ultimately resulted in increased performance and longer life of the gear set.

Figures 1 to 4 are an example where Milwaukee Gear brand worked with a customer who was not getting satisfactory performance from their existing design. 

 

The customer’s existing design did not call for any micro geometry modifications, the resulting load distribution for non-modified teeth in Figure 4 was causing macro pitting.

In Figure 5, Milwaukee Gear brand suggested lead and profile modifications based on LVR analysis of the gear train. These suggestions were based on the shaft deflection in Figure 6. After making the suggested micro geometry corrections in Figure 5, the load distribution in Figure 7 eliminated the pitting and increased the performance resulting in longer life without increasing the cost of the gear set.
