Your Voice Counts!Gear Technology needs your feedback for our annual State-of-the-Gear-Industry survey. Every year, we ask readers like you to help us better understand the trends of our industry. You can help make the results as complete as possible by participating. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes, and all responses are kept completely anonymous. Results will appear in the January/February 2022 issue.
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.
