Thesis project at Sawing & Drilling R&D, Construction Division, Husqvarna Group
Do you want to do your thesis work at Husqvarna Group and our department Sawing & Drilling R&D, Construction Division?
Thesis project: Gear box concept evaluation for construction products
Today’s products offer a number of fixed gear ratios which typically require the rotation of the gearbox shafts to come to a full stop before allowing (dis-)engagement and shifting of the gears.
We wish to investigate what concept(s) could be utilized to provide shifting at full rotational speed and whether there is one or more concepts that can be industrialized for a drill motor-application.
We also wish to investigate if it is possible to shift the gears of the gear box with electronics.
Find the optimal transmission concept for a drill motor, considering for example (but not limited to) weight, durability, cost, etc.
The thesis will include work such as:
Investigate basic concepts and decide on the most favorable for further development.
Design, build and present a prototype transmission based on the chosen concept and optimized for a given application (product).
Give presentation of thesis in Jonsered at end of project.
Proper area of education: Mechanical- or Mechatronics Engineering
