Fail Better

AGMA has published a failure nomenclature document, AGMA 944-A19, Mechanisms of Powder Metal, PM, Gear Failures. It is written similarly to ANSI/AGMA 1010-F14 but covers powder metal gear-specific failures over 30 pages and includes 11 detailed color figures. AGMA’s goal for the next revision of ANSI/AGMA 1010 is to incorporate powder metal gear failures and expand the standard to include plastic gear failures—definitions never published by AGMA before.

Low Pressure Carburizing of Gears

Low Pressure Carburizing of Gears

Solar Atmospheres provides low pressure carburizing (LPC) that significantly increases the surface hardness/strength of steel parts for improved friction and wear. Performing LPC in a vacuum furnace eliminates oxygen and prevents IGO (intergranular oxidation) that is inherent in atmospheric carburizing, resulting in clean parts with less distortion reducing post process finishing operations, and costs.
