Superfinishing and its Effect on Micropitting

Micropitting is a prominent failure mechanism for both highly stressed case carburized gears and bearings that operate consistently in low speed, low load environments where boundary conditions predominate.

The Impact of Surface Condition and Lubricant on Gear Tooth Friction

Frictional losses in gear boxes are of significant interest to gear box designers as these losses transform into heat.  The direct result is a reduction in the fuel efficiency of the vehicle involved.
