Gear Test Rigs

 


 
 

Universal Gear Test Rig

The universal gear test rig enables the accomplishment of a wide range of measurements and tests on transmissions and their components. In addition to sound pressure and structure borne noise, transmission error and angular acceleration can be detected using flexible measurement units at user defined positions. more...

 

 
 

Gear Efficiency Test Rig

At WZL, a back-to-back test rig with axial distance a = 91.5 mm for measuring the power loss of single gear stages as well as modular test setups for power difference measurement of industrial gear units are available to investigate gear efficiency. more...

 

 
 

Two-Disk Test Rigs

Due to the cost-intensive production of test gears with their complex geometry a competitive and time-saving analogy method with which the tribological conditions can be tested is required. At the WZL this analogy test is performed on two-disk test rigs using cylindrical and/or crowned rollers. more...

 

 
 

Back-to-Back Test Rig for Reverse Bending

The Gear Department of the WZL runs a Back-to-Back Test Rig for Reverse Bending with a center distance of a = 112,5 mm. The two load cycles are seperated from each other. Consequently, varying torques and load directions can be realized in each cycle. more...

 

 
 

Back-to-Back Test Rig with Three Shaft Principle

The Back-to-Back Test Rig with Three Shaft Principle is used for investigations of the load carrying capacity of the tooth flank and the tooth root of spur gears with variable geometry and center distance. more...

 

 
 

Electrical Power Circle Test Rig

The Electrical Power Circle Test Rig allows the investigation of the excitation behavior of gears of different geometries at constant boundary conditions. more...

 

 
 

Pulsator Test Rigs

The calculation of the tooth root load carrying capacity is based on Woehler (S/N) curves, which are determined in bench tests. Mechanically and hydraulically driven pulsators as well as back-to-back test rigs are available. more...
