Before and After ISF Process Helical Gear Shafts

Helical Gear Shafts

Aerospace components operate in severe conditions where stakes are high and as a result, part failure is not an option. Manufacturing these components is both complex and costly, and as such, there is a demand for decreasing friction and wear, reducing noise and vibration, increasing power density, and extending mean time between maintenance. REM­’s­­­­ ISF®­­­­ Process meets all of these needs. Our ISF Process creates a smooth, micro-textured surface without any metallurgical risk. The ISF Process is commercially used in both military and civilian fixed wing and rotary aircraft and has a proven record of reducing wear and increasing part durability.

Some of the Aerospace Applications REM’s ISF Process can assist with include:

  • Main and Intermediate Transmission Gears
  • Turbine Engine Power Gears
  • Main Transmission Bearings
  • Air FoilsHelical Gear Shafts
  • Helical Gear Shafts
  • Blisks
  • Stator Rings
  • Tail Rotor Gears
  • Flight Actuator Components
  • Rotor Hinge Pins
  • Generator, Hydraulic and Fuel Pump Gears
  • Fuel Transfer Components

ISF Aerospace Part Performance Benefits:

  • Reduce Friction
  • Reduce Contact and Bending Fatigue
  • Lower Operating Temp
  • Reduce Vibration and Noise
  • Increase Power Density
  • Increase Part Durability
  • Reduce Lubrication Requirements and Cost
  • Increase Fuel Efficiency
  • Extend Mean Time Between Maintenance
