Hino tweaks materials to improve wear resistance of synchromesh gears, sleeves by 45%

Automatic transmissions with a synchronized mesh mechanism are becoming more commonplace in commercial vehicles, but there is a strong need to increase the wear resistance of sleeves and dog gears, which are subject to impact loads at high surface pressures. Hino Motors engineers achieved a 45% reduction in wear in actual parts with B, Ti-Nb added to steel.
