Surface Treatment of Gears Using the Pulsed Plasma Ion Nitriding Technology 2002-01-1362

There has been much discussion regarding the surface treatment of gear power transmission systems using the nitriding process. Much of the past discussions have centered around the suitability of the process results because of the potential for high surface hardness results, and the impact value of the nitrided surface.
This presentation will discuss:
  • Materials for gears for nitriding
  • Process control
  • Process method selection
  • Testing and interpretation of results
With these objectives in mind it is the intention of the writer to demonstrate the advantages of the nitriding process for the surface treatment of gears.
