The main goals of this project are innovative manufacturing and testing methods for advanced high precision and high performance mechanical transmission based on non-circular gears. The results improve the performance, cost and reliability of automated gates/barriers and motion systems.
The innovation goals of the project are attained following four related research paths:
- Research of innovative design procedures for non-circular gears.
- Development of a new, more effective, process for manufacturing of non-circular gears.
- Development of advanced new coating treatment techniques with specific characteristics to the contact and pressure conditions present in non-circular gear meshing.
- Development of an innovative metrology technique based on an optimized mix of hardware/software customized to non-circular gear measurement.
