The performance of metal surfaces can be dramatically enhanced by the thermal process of rapid surface melting and re-solidification (RMRS). When the surface of a metal part (for instance, a gear) is melted and re-solidified in less than one thousandth of a second, the resulting changes in the material can lead to:
Increased wear and corrosion resistance,
Improved surface finish and appearance,
Enhanced surface uniformity and purity, and
Sealing of surface cracks and pores.
