- A Group research centre:
Hutchinson’s Research Centre, located in Montargis (France), is home to more than 200 engineers and technicians.
In all its areas of expertise, the Research Centre has leading edge equipment for:
- chemical analysis;
- digital simulation;
- material performance;
- vibration mechanics;
- transformation processes.
The Research Centre provides technical assistance to various Hutchinson entities.
Highly qualified local teams and high-tech resources:
In Tours, our teams of technicians and engineers have very high performance (thermal and electrical) test benches at their disposal:
- Characterisation tests
- Slipping Torque,
Our test benches simulate the most difficult environments in the harshest conditions.
To develop our technical expertise and new products, we use specific simulation tools through finite elements (non-linear if necessary) to predict and simulate the performance of belts and mechanical parts better.
|Calculation of pressure distribution during rolling on the back or on the teeth of a belt|
|Modelling of ad hoc slipping during belt rotation and power transfer|
|Calculation of contact pressure on belt profile during power transfer|
|Calculation of pressure in mechanical parts subjected to stress|
We use functional simulation tools to design your power transmission and share our technical expertise with you (transmission output, belt lifetime, slipping, dynamic tensions, strand flapping, etc.).
|Calculation of tension, rolling, stresses on pulleys and lifetime of pulleys on power transmission systems|
|Simulation of dynamic phenomena such as strand flapping, slipping or stresses experienced by the power transmission system|
|Calculation and measurement of the energy output of power transmission systems|
