Material Selection for Gears

Material Selection Material selection for gears is an important process because these are the components that are under stresses while working. Material selection is also important as it define the weight and cost of the product. So for the proper working and cost effectiveness of the product it is very important to select the best material through the material selection process. Material selection process for the gears and shaft consist of number of factors, no which the selected materials are evaluated and the best one is selected for the product. Followings are the factors which are involve in the material selection process. Mechanical Aspects Manufacturing Aspects Economic Aspects Environmental Aspects Mechanical Aspects Mechanical aspects include the mechanical properties which are necessary for the selection of the best material for the product. Mechanical properties will show how a product or component will perform under the action of forces and stresses.
