In many industries including wind, automotive and manufacturing, gearbox efficiency is the key driver of operational success.
The challenge is friction, which compromises gearbox efficiency. Maximising the efficiency of every gearbox depends on the control of friction. Gearbox friction generates excessive heat, putting thermal stress on system components which causes wear and pitting. This shortens the life of component parts and reduces gear box performance, causing unscheduled downtime and replacement/labour costs.
