Gear components often have complex geometries as well as high speed and efficiency requirements.
These parts can experience high operating temperatures and severe loads which necessitate more durable parts.
REM’s Isotropic Superfinish (ISF®) Process solves these problems by reducing friction resulting in extended component life and increased fuel efficiency.
The ISF Process creates a smooth, micro-textured surface for enhanced oil retention properties and is metallurgically safe.
These ISF processes are robust, easy to automate and are tightly controlled to preserve the component’s geometrical integrity.
Most rears like Ford 8.8, GM 10 and 12 bolts; Dana 44, etc. use some combination of the following.
