Obtaining ISF - Rapid ISF
With the automotive consumer demanding increased fuel efficiency, gear surface finish has become a priority for manufactures. The surface REM's isoptropic superfinish process produces is recognized as the ultimate for improving gear mesh efficiency. Until now, this process was not complimentary to high volume gear production, but a new breakthrough in the technology overcomes this hurdle. Single finishing units are compatible with a JIT environment and can produce a finished gear every minute. The technology is easily automated further lending itself to high volume production.
REM's Rapid ISF Process is able to produce a planar surface of Ra .1 µm or less in 4 minutes.
