Optimum Carburized and Hardened Case DepthBy Robert Errichello and Andrew Millburn
The optimum carburized and hardened case depth for each gear failure mode is different and must be defined at different locations on the gear tooth. Current gear rating standards do not fully explain the different failure modes and do not clearly define the different locations that must be considered.
Gear Carburizing in Vacuum
Solar Atmospheres provides low pressure vacuum carburizing (LPVC) that significantly increases the surface hardness/strength of steel parts for improved friction and wear. Performing LPVC 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.

High Volume, In-Process Gear Inspection: Now with Lead Measurement
New GRSL combines traditional roll testing with advanced non-contact laser technology in a single system. Analytical index, profile and even lead measurement can now be done in seconds. Itâ€™s ideal for high volume, 100% gear inspection, and operating in a Closed Loop with production machines.
Vacuum carburizing with gas quench and no oil
Low-pressure carburizing is the future of case hardening, and many materials can be carburized and quenched without oil. Vectorâ„˘ high pressure gas quench vacuum furnaces handle a wide range of heat treatment processes to support the specialty gear industry.

Helios KFS 100 and 250 Sharpeners Turn 20
In 1999, the global gear manufacturing industry suffered from limited choices of CNC gear tool sharpening equipment. Consequently, Helios Gear Products began development of an American designed, American-built machine tool dedicated for resharpening hobs, shaper cutters, and milling cutters. Today, 20 years later, these â€śKFSâ€ť machines have been installed on 4 continents.
Ceratizit Offers Single Point Turning Solution
High Dynamic Turning (HDT) from Ceratizit combined with the companyâ€™s dynamic FreeTurn tooling allows customers to carry out all traditional turning operations such as roughing, finishing, contour turning, face turning and longitudinal turning with just one tool. HDT with FreeTurn represents a completely new method of turning.
