Requirement: Customer needs to improve the efficiency of drivetrain to increase its sales.
Services provided: Romax designed a contra-rotating propeller system which could increase the efficiency by 15~20% by 2020. Throughout this project we provided feasibility studies for parallel, planetary and perpendicular gear types, concept design selection and detail designing along with technical support for the manufacturing, testing, certification support and CMS development.
Requirement: customer develops new planetary gear system for marine application, and wants to check maximum capacity of developed gearbox whilst improving design.
Services provided: Using our software, RomaxDESIGNER, Romax was able to produce a model of the planetary gear system based on component drawings provided by the customer and successfully calculate the component loads.
Requirement: To look at gearbox whine noise and gearbox optimization
Services Provided: Romax used its software Dynamic Fusion to create NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) analysis and predict gearbox noise, whilst looking to optimize the gear design and bearing modification to meet customer targets. We calculated the system modes and critical frequencies, and undertook a system durability assessment to achieve our customer's objectives.
