Vehicle Test Rig


In late 2009 NTG were approached by a major design house to assist with the design and manufacture of a test rig gearbox for a high profile auto manufacturer. A major requirement of the high precision ground gear sets was an 18 month warranty on gear wear life. NTG’s solution was a helical gear assembly. The 500mm helical gears were carburised, hardened, mounted on an 800mm shaft and gear ground as an assembly. The gear sets were then shot peened and balanced. The gear assemblies are still running successfully 6 years after installation.
