Moventas and SentientScience have studied GE 1.5 gearboxes as premature failures in the gearboxes are driving unexpected downtime and increased costs. The premature failure modes were prevented by Moventas upgrades and verified in DigitalClone® Software. The results of the computational testing are ...
