Cold Drawn Carbon Steel Gear Profile for the Heavy Equipment Industry
(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
Manufactured at Rathbone Precision Metals, Inc. for use in a mechanical fuel injector application, this asymmetrical gear profile is only one part of an entire gear configuration, which is produced to precise dimensions that are critical to the functionality of the final assembly. Our cold working techniques and precision die designs provided a better surface finish and eliminated the need for hobbing, saving the customer valuable time and money.
Fabricated from 1215 Carbon Steel, we used a cold draw process to create this .900" wide by .770" high gear profile with 63 Ra surface finish and precisely formed teeth that required no additional machining. Dimensional tolerances were held to ±.002", straightness was within .020" per foot.
