LET US HELP YOU WITH YOUR GEAR PROBLEMS
Over 60 years experience in the gear industry. Over 20 years consulting experience in all types of industries. Over 140 different clients with applications from tiny camera gears to large hydro-electric plant drive gears. We have published numerous articles and technical papers in the area of gear metrology, noise, and transmission error (single flank composite) testing.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE AND APPLICATIONS
• All types of gearing, cylindrical, bevel, worm gearing, etc.
• Gear noise testing and control
• Transmission error testing
• Gear metrology (inspection)
• Manufacturing problems
• AGMA and ISO standards (application and interpretation)
We have equipment to do FFT analysis of gear noise. Also inspection for analysis of gear accuracy elements such as involute, lead, index, etc. We have transmission error measuring instrumentation that can be used in the field as well as in our laboratory, under simulated mounting conditions. Very few pieces of this equipment are available in this country. It is especially valuable for the solution of gear noise and accuracy problems as well as imaging density variation problems in printing presses and office equipment.
We have presented several seminars for AGMA on the subjects of gear inspection, gear noise, and transmission error testing. We can also arrange for private, in-house seminars.
