Gear Test Rig

Gear sets and gearboxes are developed by VOLVO Construction Equipment. Any modeled or theoretical improvements of the gear sets and gearboxes must be verified by thorough mechanical testing in a controlled and known environment.

ALFGAM Optimering has participated in the design and evaluation of a gear test rig by performing stress and eigen frequencies analysis on both separate gear boxes and the complete test rig (independently and together).


The eigen frequency analysis provided valuable information on potential interference between the test rig and the measured entity.
