NASA's Lubrication-Free Precision Gear Technology Brought to EarthSign up to learn about the formation techniques leveraged by Amorphology to create precision gears and complex parts with Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG) alloys. Our uniquely efficient casting, additive manufacturing methods, and rapid prototyping offer quality and repeatability that compete against the gold standard of traditional metal manufacturing methods.
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.
SECO/VACUUM has the Nitriding technology you want
SECO/VACUUMâ€™s retort nitriding furnaces are available in more standard sizes and types than any other manufacturer. In addition to Nitriding, they are also used for Ferritic Nitrocarburizing (FNC) with post oxidation. SVTâ€™s patented ZeroFlowÂ® control technology with vacuum purge assures optimum results at low operating costs. Click here to learn more.
Game Changer: Hard Finishing with 100% Gear Inspection
As many as 95% of finished automotive gears go untested. Gleasonâ€™s new Hard Finishing Cell (HFC) solves the challenge of random gear inspection, with integrated inspection of up to 100% of all gears in process. Gleasonâ€™s revolutionary HFC combines the speed of threaded wheel grinding or honing with new GRSL gear inspection with laser scanning in a Closed Loop system. Itâ€™s a fully automated system with robot loading that integrates modules for various auxiliary processes.
