A New Method for Hardened Gears Machining - Ausform Finishing Process
Ausform finishing process plastically deforms the surface of a steel component, generates compressive residual stresses in the surface layer, and imparts added strength and durability to the component. It integrates heat treatment, roll finishing and hardening of steel components into a single in-line manufacturing operation. The gear steel 20CrMo is introduced to determine various operation parameter of this process. The experiment results shown that ausform finished gears have the advantages of improved surface finish and profile accuracy.
