Surface engineering: A way to provide maximum properties in articles

  • V. M. Zinchenko
Surface Engineering


The example of cemented and cyanided gears is used to show that their maximum strength and service life can be provided only by methods of surface engineering that presuppose purposeful designing of the structure and phase composition of the most loaded zone of the gears, i.e., the teeth surface.
