Taking into Account the Production Methodology and Estimating the Influence of Manufacturing Quality

A multitude of different processes for manufacturing cylindrical gears are available. For pre-machining, processes such as hobbing, profile milling, shaping, broaching or skiving are available. Fewer processes exist for hard finishing, mainly generation grinding, profile grinding and gear honing. Gears are produced based on the tool geometry and process kinematics. The kinematic is calculated by the control software of the machine, using the theoretical gear data and the required tooth modifications. Usually, the design department designs a gear with little discussion about the production. If the production is outsourced, as is often the case nowadays, during the design phase usually no decision is taken as to who will produce the gears, or which process will be used.

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.
