Development of High Hardness-Cast Gears for High-Power Applications in the Mining Industry


Multiple solutions are available to increase the transmissible power of girth gears, including using a larger module, increasing the gear diameter, enlarging the face width, and increasing the hardness of the base material. Base material hardness, the only parameter that is not limited by cutting machine size, is being increased to meet higher power needs. This paper will review the related design and manufacturing impact of the high-hardness gears needed to meet today's industry demands.
