Gears

Dynamic production solutions and measurement techniques to help gear manufacturers optimise processes for complex parts to a consistently high standard with traceable and reliable results.

Non-Contact Measurement of Splined Shafts

The industrial revolution brought with it the requirement to transmit power from a central location to individual machines via shafts and belts. While this problem was initially solved with the introduction of single-tooth keys and keyways, the move away from chain drives and axles to gearboxes and driveshafts called for a more elegant solution – the spline assembly. Whether involute splines or serrated splines, this innovation now comes in a variety of forms that have a key characteristic in common – complexity that demands high accuracy metrology to ensure quality.

Reverse Engineering „Down to the Teeth“

Precise sprocket teeth for the best possible conversion of muscle power into motion speed: a perfectly produced gear cassette thanks to reverse engineering really gets two-wheel products rolling! From the different sized sprockets of a gear cassette all the way up to their accurate three-dimensional models is only a short, but even more so, a very precise measuring process: regardless of size or shape of the original, the true-to-detail data capture of any complex object geometries and free-form areas is accomplished in a matter of a few seconds.

Precision Measurement of Automotive Transmission Components

Automotive manufacturers are challenged to produce more components, faster, without compromising accuracy. 

Non-Contact Measurement of Synchro Rings and Shift Collars

Automotive gearbox technology made a significant step forward with the introduction of the “synchromesh gearbox” developed by Earl Thompson in the United States in 1928. The name synchromesh describes the function of synchronising the gears before meshing to enable a quiet, efficient and easy to use gear change.
