What is heat treatment?
What are the most common heat treatments for steel alloy metals? The heat treating process is used to change the physical and mechanical properties, without altering the shape of a metal part. These steel treatments are provided through several different options to achieve two desired results. What are these results of steel heat treating? – First, to increase the surface strength of the steel alloy material. – Second, heat treatments are also used to soften the material and improve the ease of machinability. The Hardening Process of Heat Treating When a steel material is hardened for manufacturing of a shaft, gear or precision part, it is done to increase the surface strength and wear resistance properties. Once a steel component...

Planet gears used in powertrain applications
Inside all automobiles exists the transmission to help regulate power and control vehicle speeds. There are so many different items that help the transmission properly work. This includes a proper planetary gearbox as well as the proper gear ratio. How Planetary Gears function inside of transmission gear sets The transmission is built with several distinct types of gears. The gears are paired with specialized shafts and castings to create the final assembly – a gearbox. This is a very small amount of space. Inside of this you will find locks, wet-plate crutches, ingenious planetary gear set, gear pumps and several other parts. In the center lives the planetary gears set. The planetary gears are responsible for making the gear ratios...
