Decrease wear, reduce noise & increase power with REM.
Decrease friction and wear, reduce noise and vibration, increase power density, and extend mean time between maintenance with REM Surface Engineering’s ISF® Process. The ISF Process creates a smooth, micro-textured surface without any metallurgical risk and is used to produce isotropic, superfinished gears, shafts, bearings and drivetrain components. Resulting finishes of Ra <2 microinches are achieved via refinement of the actual metal surfaces. New transmission designs incorporating ISF have allowed power density increases over 20%. ISF is used in both military and civilian fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft with a proven record of reducing wear and increasing part durability.
REM, the inventor of the ISF Process, is a global supplier of surface engineering products and services, and works with many aerospace customers. REM’s ISF Technology has also been proven capable of repairing lightly damaged aerospace gears to a better-than-new condition, offering significant cost savings and downtime reductions. REM is AS9100 certified.
