The KSC Project 002 is a combination of a planetary gear system and a car differential.
A planetary gearbox refers to a gear system in which one or more ‘planet’ gears rotate around a central ‘sun’ gear.
The differential is a device that splits the engine torque two ways, allowing each output to spin at a different speed.
This project is started as a learning project to promotion of technology within the region. The plan is to produce five pieces, three of them are handed over to knowledge institutions.
A great project, realized by the van Hoof group as main contractor. Project lead: Kevin Sprengers.
Supported by many other companies, every company added their own knowledge area.
