High-performing gear transmissions are needed to reduce CO2 emissions. In this paper an FZG gear test rig was used to investigate how two running-in loads affects the gear mesh efficiency for two different temperatures. The gear surface roughness was investigated in parallel with testing. Higher efficiency was observed for tests using a high running-in load, and for low lubricant temperatures. The running-in load had a larger effect on the mesh efficiency than temperature. The high running-in load also yielded higher gear mesh efficiency and had a larger impact on surface parameters.
