Expert know-how plus fast and accurate simulations to explore designs in depth - to eliminate gear, bearing and synchronizer problems, providing weight savings and bringing down costs
Requirement: bearing supplier assessment
Services provided: assess if supplier's product was suitable for application including analysis of risk of changing, quality review completed benchmarking against current supply, use of measured data in analysis, audit and develop supplier manufacturing to meet product quality requirement. We enabled this client to reduce cost by 18% from changing supply course of bearings.
Sophisticated methods verified across multiple successful engagements: optimize the performance of the whole system, improve efficiency, reduce CO2 - and avoid expensive prototyping and testing
Requirement: fully assess dual clutch transmission (DCT) design
Services provided: lubrication and assembly assessment, examine gear misalignment and load distribution factors, FE stress analysis of gearbox housing and shift forks, NVH assessment including gear micro-geometry, transmission error sensitivity analysis and mode shape prediction. We provided notable design changes to the transmission concept to improve gear durability, gear micro-geometry design and bearing support.
