Helical Gear Wheel
Benefit: Improved Performance, Increased Component Complexity
Main Forming Process: Conventional Processing
End Use Sector: Automotive
Material: Ferrous


The helical gear wheel with toothing of >4.0° helix angle is used in a mechanical gear unit in an electric parking break and is, therefore, a security-relevant part. The mechanicaltribological demands placed on the component or on the entire subassembly are fulfilled by the helical gear wheel through geometry, material used and finishing treatment within a fully linked process with completely automated steps with pick & place robot loading and 100% acoustical resonance inspection.

Component Specification

Density (g/cm3): 6.60-6.95
Tensile Strength (MPa): >700
Yield Strength (MPa): >600
Elongation (% strain): >50 / >2
