For high performance gear and powertrain applications, Austempered materials offer component manufacturers the benefits of higher wear resistance, reduced noise, increased bending and contact fatigue, and increased strength and durability. Depending on your specific application, Austempering an iron, steel, or powdered metal component can give you a competitive edge. Companies such as Delphi Automotive, Dana Corporation, Ford Motor Company, AGCO, John Deere, and General Motors have discovered the benefits of Austempering in their component designs.
