Abstract (summary)

The goal of this thesis was to research and develop epicyclic spur gearbox for sintering manufacturing process. Sintered type of manufacturing process has been in place for quite a long time, though its usage has been limited by knowledge in the material, processes and design of these parameters integrated together for optimization. The pages to follow provide information on Sintering process and the design of gear parts.

The focus has been to investigate different type of sinter materials and design a 2-stage gearbox with high efficiency. Other aim is also to showcase the advantage of using methods of manufacturing that save cost and provide a reliable product.
