In the off-highway industry, equipment is often placed under severe loads in hostile environments. Heavy equipment demands high torque requirements, and the stop-and-go conditions typical of its operation, grind on interacting metal components. Furthermore, maintenance is often not performed as scheduled and break-in procedures are seldom followed, leading to premature wear that may result in catastrophic failures. These failures along with the high fuel and lubricant consumption combine to increase operating costs.
REM’s ISF® Process solves these problems for off-highway equipment. The ISF Process helps keep industrial equipment running by reducing friction among intermeshed parts, increasing mean time between equipment overhaul and increasing power density to meet industry production demands. In addition, REM is capable of ISF processing gears weighing over 4000 lbs. REM also has established a refurbishment program which turns otherwise scrap components into better than new parts. Lastly, REM currently has a patent pending for ISF processing of high density carbided gears.
