Industrial gearbox design has come a long way

Successful system integration demands that all aspects and elements of the overall design are considered at the earliest possible stage. this is particularly relevant in gearbox design where light material and compact housing are a feature of high volume gearboxes of low to medium power. Steps in the analysis of the housing-shaft-bearing system are to assume that bearing are non-linear yielding elements and that shafts are flexible. Coupled with finite element techniques for modelling under load conditions, this can verify optimization of the overall design.
