Motorization: the motorization of power makes the traditional gear transmission face challenges. The crisis brought by it is: on the one hand, the traditional gear transmission is upgraded to the high speed, low noise, high efficiency, high precision and long life with simpler and lighter structure; on the other hand, it is faced with the subversion of direct electric drive without gear transmission. Therefore, the traditional gear transmission enterprises should not only study how to meet the requirements of motorization for noise control of gear transmission under ultra-high speed (≥15000rpm), but also seize the opportunity of the growth of new transmission caused by the explosive growth of electric vehicles. We should also pay close attention to the revolutionary threat of future gearless direct drive technology and electromagnetic drive technology to the traditional gear drive and gear industry.
Flexibility: in the future, the market competition is increasingly encouraging, and the demand for products tends to be diversified and personalized, but the demand for a single product may not be very large. As a basic industry in the manufacturing industry, the gear industry has to face many downstream fields, which puts forward higher requirements for the diversity and efficiency of product manufacturing. Therefore, it is necessary for enterprises to establish a flexible production system to complete the batch production tasks of different varieties on the same production line through equipment adjustment, which can not only meet the diversified requirements of multiple varieties, but also minimize the downtime of equipment assembly line, realize flexible production and build the core competitiveness of enterprises.
Intelligent: the wide application of control technology in the machine makes the machine realize automation; The integrated application of control technology, information communication technology and network technology makes machines and manufacturing intelligent. For traditional gear manufacturing enterprises, the challenge is how to integrate electrical engineering, electronic engineering, control technology, network technology and integration to form intelligent.
Lightweight: Lightweight and high-strength materials, structural weight reduction and surface modification enhancement require cross-industry collaboration and advanced simulation technology.
