The Gear Research Institute was a pioneer in Cooperative Pre-Competitive research by establishing research groups consisting of several industrial organizations with similar research interests. However, at the current time only one such research bloc is active and is listed below. Plans are always in progress to initiate other research groups and if there is interest in a specific research topic, please contact the Institute.
Aerospace Research Bloc
Avio Group (Italy)
Boeing (Mesa and Philadelphia)
Carpenter Technology Corporation
General Electric, Aviation
General Electric, Global Research
Pratt & Whitney (East Hartford, CT and Quebec, Canada)
REM Surface Engineering
Turkish Aerospace Industries
UTC Aerospace Systems
A significant component of the Gear Research Institute’s research activity, in recent years, has been with Single-Client sponsorship. These are research activities that are of particular interest to one industrial organization and in many instances addressing gear related problems in DoD weapons system platforms. From a small start when the Institute was first founded, Single-Client programs have become a major component of our activity. Some of our prominent sponsors, in the last twelve months, are the following:
Distortion Control Technologies, Inc.
IBC Materials and Technologies
QuesTek Innovations, LLC
If there is gear research and development in your future or a gear problem in your present, please contact the Institute. Together we can address the issue or problem for our mutual benefit.
