Progetti in the European ambit - Clean Sky
We are particularly active in European research and development projects on the Clean Sky platform. The research activity mainly concerns the area of mechanical power transmissions for aeronautical applications.
The HILOGEAR (High load gear and bearings materials) project supports the aims to mature differentiating technologies and processes that could be introduced in the innovative drive system module for the UHPE (Ultra High Propulsion Efficiency Engine) demonstrator.
The main HILOGEAR project tasks and goals are:
- the selection, jointly with the TM, of promising materials and surface treatments suitable both for gears and bearings
- testing activities on bearings also in contaminated conditions
- testing activities on gears in high load and high temperature conditions similar to those of new engines
