Gear Efficiency Laboratory

houses a number of test machines designed specifically to evaluate efficiency and durability aspects of gears, gear materials and lubricants. Two twin-disk test machines for contact fatigue, scoring and traction measurements and an efficiency test machine shown here with helical gear efficiency fixtures. This efficiency test machine is designed to evaluate loaded and unloaded power losses of gear pairs under high-speed (up to 10,000 rpm) and high-load conditions (up to 700 Nm).
