|net and near-net gears.|
Presrite’s Bessemer Division is the premier near-net gear manufacturing facility in the world. Our dedicated, gear-making plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The gears we produce here typically range from .004" to .060" stock allowance on the gear flanks.
Near-net gears don’t have to cost you extra time and money. Parts that were previously made by hobbing are now being economically hot-forged to net and near-net shape at Presrite.
Here are some of the ways our customers benefit from this dedicated facility:
• Improved utilization of raw material • Elimination of rough hobbing • Improved mechanical properties • Lower tooling cost • Longer tool life • Reduced cycle times • Elimination of normalizing in some cases • Higher-quality finished parts
