Pfitzner Performance Gearbox pride themselves on their design, research and development of custom built, high performance, close ratio gear sets, to the highest standard.
The process of gear design is detailed, technical and precise, starting with CAD drawings developed in our state of the art “control room” using the latest software available. These blueprints ensure specifications including tooth count, desired gear ratio and basics like "internal gearbox dimensions", for your project are incorporated, to produce the strongest, lowest wearing and efficient, tooth profile.
The custom tooth profile drawings are only the first stage of the process. The next step in the production of a Pfitzner Performance Gearbox is creating unique tools to cut the gear set to exact design. These tools are high-tech, modern and of the highest quality to ensure each gear set is produced with ultimate precision.
A steel billet (a solid piece of pure steel) is then carved, sliced and shaped with absolute precision by our automated, robotic machinery to accurately mirror the design blueprints. Whether helically or straight cut our gear sets are meticulously created with strength and performance always our goal.
To compliment the unique tooth profile and further enhance strength and reliability Pfitzner Performance Gearbox manufacture a "five dog" design, dog engagement gear set using a distinctive radiused, lightweight dog ring. The Pfitzner dog gear design promotes smooth and rapid gear selection through larger dog engagement pattern, reducing wear with radiused teeth.
Competitor Tooth Profiles
Even some of our most recognised competitor’s, with long term, highly regarded reputations within the high performance field, are still utilising agricultural, technically-basic and inferior design and cutting methods.
Our competitors are manufacturing the same product they have for decades, primarily to avoid re-developing existing machinery, tooling and product designs. These “old school” models are susceptible to wear, pitting and entire tooth breakage.
