Benefits of Surface Finishing

Kart Gearboxes – By Racers for Racers 

The intense heat and high contact stress that is applied whilst racing gearbox karts can create a lot of pressure on the components. Apart from the high cost of replacement, the friction created can affect the performance of gear shifting.

By having the components super finished and polished you can:

  • Reduce vibration and noise
  • Greatly improve the gear shifting 
  • Extend the life 

But most importantly, it will improve karting performance.

Performance and Racing Cars 

The only thing that stops highly tuned performance engines from wearing out is the film of oil that separates all of the moving parts. Heat destroys this oil film and it’s the same for the gearbox, cranks and con rods. If you keep the oil temperature lower (by having the components super finished and polished) you can:

  • Reduce vibration and noise
  • Greatly improve the gear shifting
  • Extend the life of oil and cleanliness
  • Increase fuel economy
  • Improve performance

The process is suitable for all supercar and racing cars.

Industrial components and gearboxes

Running machinery 24/7 to meet your manufacturing demands puts a lot of stress and fatigue on gearboxes and component parts. Oil is the only thing protecting these parts and when the oil gets too hot, its effectiveness is impaired. 

Superfinishing and polishing will: 

  • Reduce friction thus creating more productivity
  • Increase life and durability of components
  • Lower oil temperature
  • Reduce contact and bending fatigue
  • Improve pitting resistance
  • Reduce vibration and noise 

Operating benefits

  • Eliminates break-in
  • Extends component life
  • Reduces metal debris
  • Reduces part failures
  • Minimises overheating
