The article "Loaded Behavior of Gears Made of Fiber-Reinforced PA6" appeared in the July 2014 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
This paper presents an original method for computing the loaded mechanical behavior of fiber reinforced polymer gears. Although thermoplastic gears are unsuitable for application transmitting high torque, adding fibers can significantly increase their performance. The particular case of polyamide 6 + 30% glass fibers is studied in this paper.
