Gear Tester

MEA Static & Dynamic Gear Test System.

MEA gear testing capabilities offer you an accurate and reliable “Gear Testing method” where you as a user can test the gear in a dynamic way, during gear acceleration period, and in a static way, by using two loading units with very accurate speed and torque sensors at the two gear sides. 

MEA, with its unique systems, provides accurate Gear static data of both gear sides, that include Gear Stiffness, Gear Backlash, Lost mossion, Torsion rigidity test, Gear Starting & No Load Torque, Back driving torque, Transmission Angular Accuracy, Gear Efficiency, Gear load performance & temperature, Life test. In addition, the system has patented dynamic capabilities, such as Ripple Torque, Friction Torque, Friction Spectrum, Speed & Torque Spectrum, and Gear Efficiency during acceleration. MEA’s unique testing capabilities support engineers in their efforts to continuously improve motors with gearboxes. The MEA Gear Test Systems for gearboxes allow for testing and inspection of all types of gears and are full turnkey systems.
