Case study 2 - 24 Speed Tractor

Objective

  • Clean sheet design of a 600Nm, 4 speed, 4WD, power-shift tractor transmission, prototype manufacture and development

Process

  • Break down of application requirement in terms of duty cycles and transmission systems i.e. 4WD, PTO, main transmission etc.
  • 24 speed, 72 load-case transmission models created for different sub-systems
  • Full optimisation of shaft geometry from initial concept sizing and positioning to detailed modelling
  • Bearing lives assessed throughout the design process and specifications modified as required to ensure durability requirements achieved
  • Gear design for optimal and balanced lives accounting for gear misalignment and customer’s local manufacturing capabilities

Result

  • Successful delivery of six prototype transmissions with achieved shaft, gear and bearing life in excess of the defined duty cycle requirements
