Many machine elements on the market today have been designed and implemented many decades ago. Some R & D is performed on design optimization. The paper demonstrates directions of conceptual evolution of traditional design components and feasibility of their significant improvements. Role of the “Axiom of Ideality” and of the Prevailing Trends of Evolution of engineering systems in creating novel concepts is emphasized. Descriptions of new concepts of power transmission gears and couplings, key connections, vibration isolators, cantilever design components characterized by high performance parameters are presented.
