Prototype & TEST BENCH Gear Units

High-performance gearboxes from ARTEC are customized to the customer’s requirements

As a custom gear supplier, ARTEC has the capability to design and deliver prototype gears that adhere to strict customer requirements. We can assist in gear design, or work from your drawings to produce the exact gear prototype you need. When a standard gear simply won’t work, you can feel confident in turning to our prototyping department for a unique solution. Test bench gearboxes for high dynamic endurance tests must safely and consistently transmit high powers at speeds in excess of 100,000 rpm. Test stand gearboxes from ARTEC must, therefore, be optimized to achieve high efficiency with a minimum of noise emission.
