Wear Protection for Gears

The article "Wear Protection for Gears" appeared in the March/April 1996 issue of Gear Technology.

Several trends in mechanical engineering are leading to greater surface stress on components and thus to unacceptable wear. These trends include greater stresses due to increased power densities; the need to maintain high precision of components throughout their service life; and the environmental imperative to reduce use of lubricants and additives.
