Powder Metal Sintered Metal Spur Gears are found in aerospace, agricultural, automotive, building and construction, marine transportation, material handling, medical, military, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, power generation and robotics industries. The demand for application specific metal gears has led to the introduction of several types or styles such as anti-backlash, bevel, miter, chance, cluster, differential, helical, herringbone, hypoid, internal, planetary, spur and pinion gears. While these mechanisms can be produced in a number of machining processes, powder metal parts provide several advantages over traditional gear manufacturing methods.
Gears made by the powder metallurgy process provide a cost effective alternative to conventional steel or cast iron gears that are machine finished. The powder metallurgy (P/M) process yields net-shape, or near-net-shape parts, so that little or no machining is required to obtain a finished part in many cases. Thus the process offers dimensional tolerances and mechanical properties compatible with many applications.
