Apex Dynamics BV sponsors the 21 students who participate in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge on behalf of the University of Leuven as the team Punch Power Train Solar Team. The engineering students have worked for 13 months to get the Punch 2 ready to start on the 8th of October for the 3,000 km long journey from Darwin to Adelaide. The Punch 2 will prove itself in an enormously competitive playing field of more than 50 teams. Everyone tries to drive the route as fast as possible!

The food processing industry naturally has solid hygiene requirements and this is also mandatory for gearboxes. The requirements vary by country and location in food processing but the most important factors are choice of materials, aseptic conditions and not at least the lubricant. The latter is often overlooked, but this is an essential element. The American USNSF developed a well-accepted and approved standard (H1 through H3), but an ISO certification has also been added. In this article we discuss both.

Corrosion resistance is critical in, for example, the food industry, offshore and in cleanrooms. Rust has adverse effects on the accuracy, the noise level or the life span and must be avoided at all times in applications in such kind of environments. Apex Dynamics also has a stainless steel rack, but this is not always optimal in terms of strength and accuracy. The racks of Apex Dynamics can therefore be manufactured with an extra - all sides! - corrosion protection.

In the student city of Leuven, like in all other cities, there is a lot of attention to the environment and quality of life. Because more and more people live in cities, the requirements for urban facilities and air quality are changing, which poses challenges. Postgraduate students from the Catholic University of Leuven who participate in the "innovative enterprise" program got a mobility challenge. They work on the Mobi, an electric vehicle for urban transport, whose control must be done by means of a joystick. Apex Dynamics delivered the planetary gearbox that is central for this control.

Apex Dynamics, manufacturer of low-backlash gearboxes and rack & pinion systems, has introduced a new way to mount the pinion to their gearbox: the curvic plate pinion. Apex Dynamics developed this solution in response to the demand of manufacturers of highly accurate applications such as robotics, laser cutting machines and drilling equipment. It has resulted in a solution with much higher flexibility, applicability, backlash-free assembly and short delivery times.

Apex Dynamics has expanded its AB-, ABR-, AF- and AFR- series with a so-called "spline" or "involute" output shaft that complies with the international DIN5480 standard. This makes it possible to transfer very high torques and high dynamics with a small hub.

How does a planetary gear make people happy on a festival? There are only a few people who get really happy about a high-end gearbox. Usually that are only specialists in mechanical power transmission, our customers, and of course the people of Apex Dynamics. Last summer, this group was expanded by a very special application; the Turbo Rope Tornado!
