Condition monitoring is the process of monitoring some parameters from the machinery, such that a significant change in the parameter can give information about the machinery health. Transmission failure prediction could be done by gaining the information based on wear debris analysis. Failure of transmission gearbox is unpredictable and regular maintenance of it would totally depend on mileage or duration time of the system had been used. This research would focus on the industrial gearbox located at Mechanics of Machine Laboratory and also towards having the wear particle trends of passenger car transmission gearbox. The industrial gearbox are exposed to different speed and vibration condition within a predetermined running hours. The contaminated oil collected was sent to 31d party to express the wear element presence inside the oil samples. The same approached was applied to the automotive transmission gearbox while moving towards condition monitoring. Spectroscopy method and Ferrography method are the two main approached at the test laboratory. The experiment had reveal that greater vibration with high speed of rotation will contribute to shorter gearbox life span. While in the automotive gearbox the presence of Iron, aluminium and silicon had shown a significant trend of wear debris.
