Gear Repair for Helicopters and Wind Turbines via Isotropic Superfinishing

ABSTRACT

The wind turbine, aerospace, and helicopter gear industries recognize the importance of surface finish and surface texture for maximizing component and system performance. Optimizing surface finish and surface texture has been shown to reduce failure rates and increase operating safety margins. Isotropic superfinishing in the form of chemically accelerated vibratory finishing has been utilized to increase the performance of new wind turbine, aerospace, and helicopter gears for…
