Innovative process chain for the production of lightweight gears for aerospace using 5-axis milling and grinding
Project start: Jan 2018
Project end: Dec 2020
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.
