Survey about future developments in mobility and drivetrain

How do you evaluate the future importance of virtual methods for transmission and drivetrain engineering? Is it worth optimizing the combustion engine or is it more promising to invest in electric drive systems? Are hybrid drive systems only a transition to pure electric drive systems? Continue reading

Modern Approach in the Design of Compact Axle Gears

Axle designers face multiple challenges in the design of gear sets: increasing torque density requirements; growing demand for high levels of refinement; and continually improving efficiency targets. The discrepancies between actual manufactured tooth profiles and the geometry predicted by current simulation software, combined with currently under-developed analysis methods, make it increasingly difficult for the engineer to create robust designs, optimised within their package space, without extensive hardware testing and costly development loops.
