Microlubgear is a new concept for lubrication systems that takes advantage of the volume in gear dedendum to embed a micro-fabricated part that continuously supplies fresh grease at the contact region. The system takes advantage of micro-technology and micro-tribology to fabricate a micro-nozzle that is the base of a new generation of high efficiency automatic lubrication systems.
Develop a new automatic lubrication device for pitch and yaw gears that decrease maintenance, increase energy generation and prevents excessive wear.
After successful business and technical feasibility analyses accomplished during 2013, Microlubgear lubrication final design and testing will be performed in 2014.
