Gear Design & Analysis

  1. Design of new gears, gearsets, gearboxes.
  2. Analysis of existing gears or gear designs.
  3. Design of replacement gears.
  4. Design of gears for a new ratio in an existing gearbox.
  5. Optimize gear profile shift for balance of bending strength, wear resistance, and scoring resistance.


Troubleshooting of mechanical power transmission systems;
When a mechanical power transmission system fails or does not perform properly, it is usually for one of the following reasons:
    1. Excessive loading - the system is simply experiencing greater load than it was designed to handle.
    2. Misalignment - the components of the system are not properly physically aligned with each other.
    3. Inadequate component mounting - this can lead to movement of the components under load, resulting in misalignment.
    4. Inadequate, improper, or contaminated lubrication.
    5. Unfavorable environmental conditions such as chemical or physical contaminants or extreme temperatures.
    6. Improper maintenance procedures such as forcing belts onto pulleys without first reducing center distance, or installing bearings on shafts by pressing on the outer race.
    7. Defective components.

    Bay Machine Design is equipped to analyze, diagnose and specify corrective actions for all of the above situations.
