Transmission Component Supplier Eliminates a Potential Failure Mode

A transmission component supplier had just replicated a previous design and tested it, and it failed due to high levels of friction. It was determined during testing that the increased speed was creating the high levels of friction.

After qualifying that we could make a cost-effective component, we used our experience and tribology testing to help the customer: 

  • Select an appropriate material for the application
  • Design the correct friction interface to promote cooling and hydrodynamic lift with the fluid, which was already available in their system
