Matex Gears provides planetary gears to companies that oftentimes are testing products, creating prototypes, or have new products going on the market after they tested it with our gears. We are proud that our planetary gears play such an instrumental role in the growth of so many industries, including those who are still getting their education.
Matex Gears offers a discount to universities who need planetary gears for their engineering students. One field in particular that we often supply our gears to is the automotive engineering area such as Formula SAE.
We have worked with universities such as Oklahoma State University, Carnegie Mellon University, Auburn University, Princeton University, and many more. The programs from the schools have engineering students who design and build from the ground up, a small formula car which they then compete in races with other university teams.
These programs are great because they provide real hands-on experience for these aspiring engineers, and it allows them to see what the real-world conditions could be like in their future fields.
If you are part of a university who has a Formula SAE team or another engineering program that utilizes planetary gears for their applications, contact us at Matex Gear today! We offer a great discount on our planetary gear systems for universities and enjoy helping facilitate the growth of young engineers.
