Not only are the alloys unique but the heat treatment process is different too – we use a proprietary quench in both manganese and alloy racking which increases the hardness/toughness of the end product. Add in the capability to machine tooth flanks on the alloy rack, and it gives you a refined product with precise pitch control. Precise pitch and timing result in better pinion engagement, less backlash, and greater wear life.
