MarSurf Engineered: Roughness measurement on gear teeth
Efficiency in motion – as in the case of complex gearing in gearboxes as a component of power trains – is achieved by making this motion as low-friction as possible.
This results in better power transmission and smoother running of the transmission. This in turn optimizes efficiency and reduces the running noise of the entire power train. While this relationship already applied to transmissions for conventional engines, it is becoming even more important in the age of the e-drive. In this context, the surface roughness on the gearing is an increasingly important parameter for optimizing transmissions.
