Potential for acoustically designed gear shafts

Objective

  • Optimization of the acoustic behavior of hollow gear shafts

Approach

Exploiting the production-related potential in order to influence the acoustic behavior

  • Specific design of the inner contour
  • Minimizing imbalances
  • Material design

Development objectives

  • Adapting the geometric and material parameters that can be influenced by production technology
  • Optimizing the component properties (acoustics, reduced component weight, reduced material usage) 

Benefits

  • Improving the acoustic properties by adapting the wall thickness
  • Flexible component design
  • Mass and cost reductions
