Actuation systems / x-by-wire
Ring gears are one of the main components of the planetary gear set in the starter motor and are typically made from plastic. Within the increasing start-stop technology, gears need to be stronger and more durable to withstand more frequent stress.
Creating the ring gears from powder metal provides a lightweight, high-performing solution, which is more resistant to wear and can achieve tighter tolerances.
- Low friction surfaces
- Best net shape tolerances
- High density & torque performance
- Custom-tailored tooth spline geometry
