With the demand for increased fuel efficiency, gear surface finish has become a priority for manufacturers. REM Surface Engineering’s isotropic superfinish (ISF) process produces a surface to improve gear mesh efficiency. Until now, this process was not complementary to high-volume gear production, but a breakthrough in the technology meets the challenge. Single finishing units are compatible with a just-in-time environment and can produce a finished gear every minute. The technology is easily automated, further lending itself to high-volume production. According to the company, one of its new technologies can produce a planar surface of Ra 10 µin or less in four minutes.
