Gear design

TREMEC’s design and development activities are based on system-wide integration and expertise in gears, shafts, bearings, synchronizers, shift mechanisms as well as knowledge on materials and processes that can contribute to the best torque-to-weight ratio on the market.

TREMEC engineers continually improve the physics of gear design — of multiplying torque or speed, transmitting torque between axles, and reversing direction—but at ever higher efficiency, lower mass and space, lower noise, and higher durability.

The result is that raw materials enter TREMEC’s on-site forging facility at one end and emerge as robust, superior quality products from the heavily automated plant on the other.
