CompactGears4Turbo

Innovative process chain for the production of lightweight gears for aerospace using 5-axis milling and grinding

Funding agency

BMWI

Details

The aim of the CompactGears4Turbo project is to develop an innovative process chain for manufacturing compact lightweight gears for aerospace transmissions by means of 5-axis milling and grinding. By adopting the established 5-axis milling technology, unused technologically surfaces will be reduced, thus making planetary gears significantly smaller and lighter. Preliminary studies show that weight reduction of 20% is possible.
