The choice of material for gears depends on the purpose of the transmission and its operating conditions, as well as on the overall dimensions. In this case, it is necessary to ensure the contact and bending strength of the teeth of the wheels, and resistance to seizing and wear.
The selection of materials is a complex and multi-component task, many factors must be taken into account, such as the content of retained austenite, the depth of hardening, residual stresses after heat treatment, hardening processes and others. So, for example, after surface hardening of teeth with heating by high-frequency currents, the surface strength of the teeth increases, and, accordingly, contact endurance increases, but at low modules, the tooth is hardened through, which leads to brittleness and distortion of the shape.
All the subtleties of material structure and heat treatment cannot be directly assessed, so it is especially important for the engineer to be aware of these influences and their possible consequences.
Using state-of-the-art KISSsoft software, the engineer is able to analyze the effects described above and select the right material to meet the conditions of work and the requirements for gear strength.
GloBAS Engineering services include the execution of tasks for the calculation, analysis and optimization of gears and gearboxes, as well as complex tasks for computer modeling and simulation of processes. All projects are carried out on modern professional software.
