Gears are mechanisms that allow the transformation of energy or movement into power, and are formed by a crown and a pinion, two toothed wheels of different sizes. This mechanism is used to generate propulsion and movement, so its use is very common in engines and various mechanical systems. Therefore, in the event of a breakdown, a solution must be found as soon as possible. But how to repair a metal gear? We give you the answer.
Applications and uses of gears
Steel industry, mining, automotive manufacturing lines, maritime, petrochemical industry… The sectors and areas in which you can find machines using different types of gears are really disparate due to their high performance.
Choosing the right type of gear is critical to avoid downtime and costly repairs in any industrial environment. And although there are countless options, metal gears are among the most commonly used. The efficiency of these mechanisms is determined by several factors, such as design, contact force, resistance to bending or vibration generated by the various couplings. For this reason, knowing how to repair a metal gear is essential in the event of any mishap.
