It’s hammer time in Drivetrain

February 17, 2017

Todo comienza a engranar en el Grupo Drivetrain. Todos los componentes de precisión de las reductoras están en  nuestro taller listos para ser montados y transmitir toda la potencia del FSB 2017.

 

La fase de montaje es muy delicada. Cada pieza debe ser montada en su sitio con sumo cuidado para que todo el conjunto funcione con el mayor rendimiento posible. Las tolerancias que manejamos son de micras ya que le conjunto gira a altas revoluciones y un error de concentricidad podría ser catastrófico.

 

Por otro lado, el accumulator container está listo para una nueva prueba que introducimos este año en Formula Student Bizkaia, la prueba de impermeabilidad. ¡Vamos a rociar agua a presión sobre el accumulator para comprobar que no entra ni una sola gota!

 

Gears start to link together in Drivetrain Group. Every precision component of the gear train is eventually in our mechanical workshop. They are ready to be assembled and transmit all the power of the FSB 2017.

 

The drivetrain assembly is a delicate operation. Every piece must be placed rigorously in its corresponding location in order to, the set as a whole, could work in the most efficient way. The tolerances we usually work with are measured in microns because the shaft rotates at very high speeds and, therefore, a concentricity error would definitely be catastrophic.

 

On the other hand, the accumulator container is ready for a new test that we are introducing this year in Formula Student Bizkaia, the water proofness test. ¡We are going to spray high pressure water to the accumulator to assure that not even a single water drop goes in.
