An advanced method for the manufacture of gears (review)
- 32 Downloads
Metal powder methods can be used in the manufacture of gears of many different shapes. They enable high precision gears with a high quality of finish to be made with a small number of operations which do not involve machining. These methods enable the production time to be considerably reduced (up to 58%) and the cost cut (up to 86%).
The gears made by this technology have a number of special properties which improve their operational qualities.
Metal powder gears are less noisy than solid gears and, owing to their self-lubricating properties, resist wear better.
