Testing facilities

In order to virtually engineer an optimal gear solution, VCST uses its own materials properties database. Both functional as well as noise performance properties are tested and documented in house.

 

For functional performance, the gear materials together with their heat treatment are tested on both pulsator (bending stregth) and pitting (contact stress) test rigs.

 

Our Material Technology Center with its laboratory is capable of various chemical and metallurgic research techniques.

 

For noise investigations, VCST can perform waviness analysis as well as noise measurements on running gears under load.

And last but not least, durability tests can be performed on a dedicated test machine.
