Our plastic gear design & engineering process starts with intelligent, precise and comprehensive engineering. We begin work with our clients as early as possible in the concept and design phase, to bring our full experience and capabilities to bear on the project. This collaboration yields our clients the best solution at the best price. Our gears are designed for reliability, manufacturability and economy, creating a system that will perform in sustained, real-world applications. We look beyond the individual component, designing for the system as a whole, to engineer the most creative, precise, and reliable solutions, from gears to electro-mechanical actuators.

Our engineering process includes:

  • Plastic gear design and analysis via PGS proprietary software in conjunction with Solid Modeling to provide optimization of involute gear geometry for:
    • torque
    • output speed
    • current draw
    • battery life
    • load carrying capacity
    • noise reduction
    • maximum efficiency
  • Component Design Analysis including:
    • Finite Element Analysis
    • Mold Flow: fill, pack, cool, warpage, fiber orientation analysis
  • Software capabilities include:
    • Plastic gear design analysis, etc.

At Performance Gear, we are proud of the fact that we are first and foremost an engineering company. We believe that quality, design, and engineering expertise are critical to the success of every product that goes out our door. We invest heavily in engineering software, Solid modeling, Finite Element Analysis, and mold flow simulation, to ensure that we bring the best design and engineering expertise to every project. And with over 50 years of combined plastic gear design experience, we are capable of taking on any size project, from a single gear to a complete actuator.

Our gears are designed for reliability, manufacturability, and economy, creating a system that will perform in sustained, real-world applications. We look beyond the individual component, designing for the system as a whole, to engineer the most creative, precise, and reliable solutions.

Our design and analysis via PGS proprietary software in conjunction with solid modeling, finite element analysis, and mold flow simulation, optimize the involute gear geometry for prediction of torque, output speed, current draw, battery life, load-carrying capacity, noise reduction, and maximum efficiency, through material selection, tooth form design, and tooth form type.

Our software models gears and complete gear train systems. These simulations allow us to alter variables and monitor system outputs to maximize the gear system efficiency.
