Forming Die for Ring Gears

This forming die is utilized for high volume production of ring gears for the automotive industry. The O.D. and radius of the die is coated with tungsten carbide using the HVOF Process. The tungsten carbide will help extend the life of the die from wear and grooving caused from forming the I.D.’s of the ring gears. The coated surface was finished ground achieving a ground finish of approximately 16Ra.
