Design and Fabrication of Spur Gear Using Al6063+Sic Metal Matrix Composite
Gears are the most essential and commonly utilised power transmission components. It is really essential to operate machines involving different weights and speeds. When a load is increased beyond a certain limit, gear teeth frequently fail. Composite materials, in comparison to other metallic gears, offer significantly better mechanical qualities, such as a higher strength-to-weight ratio, increased hardness, and hence a lower risk of failure. Al6063 and SiC were employed to build a metal matrix composite for spur gear production in this work. This study discovered that composite materials outperformed steel alloys and cast iron in terms of characteristics, and that composites can thus be utilised to replace metallic gears.
