Improvement of Gear Life and Performance Through Controlled Nitriding

Whether big or small in design, gears offer the same functionality – to transmit power. Keeping gears in motion requires that friction compounded by high loading does not cause premature wear. To improve the reliability, performance, and longevity of gears, understanding tribology and the application of a surface hardening process like nitriding are essential to improve the tribological properties of gears.

During this webinar, we will provide a comprehensive view of nitriding, compare wear results between nitriding and carburizing, and provide answers on how nitriding can improve gear life and performance.

The key takeaways from this webinar:
• Understanding the key elements of nitriding and nitriding process control
• Understanding the nature of nitrided layers and their function in improving gear life, surface property customization
• Tribology of nitrided layers compared to carburized layers: key advantages of nitriding
• Controlled Nitriding: Practical applications

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This webinar may be of interest to mechanical engineers, automotive powertrain engineers, quality control engineers, metallurgists, machinists, heat treaters, as well as purchasing personnel aiming to improve gear manufacturing quality and cost reduction.
