The article "The Effect of Superfinishing on Gear Micropitting" appeared in the March/April 2009 issue of Gear Technology.
Results from the Technical University of Munich were presented in a previous technical article (see Ref. 4). This paper presents the results of Ruhr University Bochum. Both research groups concluded that superfinishing is one of the most powerful technologies for significantly increasing the load-carrying capacity of gear flanks.
