Gearbox Design

The team of ADT has many years of experience in the development and realisation of gearbox and drive designs. With our expertise in the field of gearbox and drivetrain development, we support you in the design, optimisation and realisation of your gearbox projects.

ADT supports you with your project through all development phases:

  • Idea generation
  • Idea screening
  • Concept development
  • Product development
  • Manufacturing via our partner network
  • Testing

We perform:

  • Gear Design
  • Shaft Design
  • Shaft-hub-connections
  • Bearing design
  • Lubrication and cooling
  • Surface & heat treatments
  • High performance coatings

We optimize your gearbox for:

  • Efficiency
  • Mass
  • Design space
  • Contact pattern
  • Noise, vibration and harshness – NVH

ADTs employees are versed in several simulation, design and calculation programs:

  • KISSsoft for the design, optimization and recalculation of machine elements in accordance with international standards
  • Siemens NX for creation of 2D drawings and 3D models
  • Simcenter 3D  for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Finite Element Method (FEM) and multi-body simulations.

Success story: Giant Magellan Telescope

The Giant Magellan Telescope will be a next generation ground-based extremely large telescope based in Chile. It will consist of seven 8,4m diameter primary segments. The telescope is expected to have a resolving power 10 times of the Hubble Space Telescope.

ADT was commissioned to the following tasks:

  • The existing design was modelled and validated.
  • The strength of the gearing was recalculated according to the currently valid standard ISO 6336:2019. This represents the load distribution on several teeth better than the previous standard.
  • The force and torque deviations of the gear mesh were calculated to serve as a starting point for NVH- analyses.
  • The gear geometry was optimized to minimize the force and torque deviations.
