Why should gears be quenched?

Gear quenching is widely used, but do you know why gears are quenched? In order to let more people know about gear quenching equipment, we,Forever electromechanical manufacturer, based on more than 10 years of production and practical experience, summarize the following for you:

1. Gear quenching is to greatly improve the rigidity, hardness, wear resistance, fatigue strength and toughness of steel, so as to meet the different requirements of various mechanical parts and tools.

2. Quenching of steel is a heat treatment process in which the steel is heated to a temperature above the critical temperature AC3 (hypoeutectoid steel) or AC1 (hypereutectoid steel), held for a period of time to make it fully or partially austenitized, and then cooled to below MS (or isothermal near MS) at a cooling rate greater than the critical cooling rate for martensite (or bainite) transformation. Generally, the solid solution treatment of aluminum alloy, copper alloy, titanium alloy, tempered glass and other materials or the heat treatment process with rapid cooling process is also called quenching.

3. There are teeth on the wheel rim that can continuously mesh and transmit motion and power. The application of gears in transmission has long appeared. At the end of the 19th century, the principle of generative tooth cutting method and the special machine tools and tools for tooth cutting based on this principle appeared one after another. With the development of production, the stability of gear operation was paid attention to.
