Increment of Material Properties of EN24 Pinion by Heat Treatment Process

June 1, 2021 Engineering 0

The goal of this research was to see if heat treatment could improve the material qualities of EN24 pinions. Heat treatment involves heating the base material over critical temperature and then cooling it with salt water, air, or oil. The failure study was performed on a failed pinion gear that is utilized in the automotive industry for power transmission. The pinion gear is composed of case carburized steel with low nickel and chromium content, and it has also been heavily corroded as a result of an environmental issue. The teeth are severely rusted and damaged on the surface. The crack, on the other hand, developed as a result of stress and can only be detected in specific locations. Nickel and chromium content are added, as well as heat treatment, to improve corrosion resistance. When compared to failure gear and EN24 steel before heat treatment, EN24 steel has superior mechanical qualities and wear resistance.
