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.
