Design & Analysis software
Services offered include calculation or experimental determination of
loads and stresses, selection of components, calculation of component
life, layout and detailed design of mechanical power transmission
systems, as well as troubleshooting of existing mechanical power
transmission systems. Troubleshooting capabilities include
determination of loads with strain gauges and/or load cells, and
Design offers services relating to
the following types of mechanical power transmission components:
Gear Design & Analysis
- Design of new
gears, gearsets, gearboxes.
- Analysis of
existing gears or gear designs.
- Design of
- Design of gears
for a new ratio in an existing
- Optimize gear
profile shift for balance of bending
strength, wear resistance, and scoring resistance.
Troubleshooting of mechanical power transmission systems; When
a mechanical power transmission system fails or
does not perform properly, it is usually for one of the following
loading - the system is simply
experiencing greater load than it was designed to handle.
- Misalignment -
the components of the system are not
properly physically aligned with each other.
component mounting - this can lead to
movement of the components under load, resulting in misalignment.
improper, or contaminated lubrication.
environmental conditions such as
chemical or physical contaminants or extreme temperatures.
maintenance procedures such as forcing
belts onto pulleys without first reducing center distance, or
installing bearings on shafts by pressing on the outer race.
Bay Machine Design is equipped to analyze, diagnose and specify
corrective actions for all of the above situations.
