Remarkable performance improvements lie at the surface of your gears, shafts, springs and other mechanical components. Timken offers processes that "engineer" the surface of these components, imparting surface characteristics that can increase life, enhance durability, increase abrasion resistance and reduce friction.
You can select from our toolbox of engineered surface treatments that incorporate a range of enhancements, including topographical modifications that reduce friction and extremely hard coatings that combine high abrasion resistance and low friction.
How do we create an "Engineered Surface"?
Timken Engineered Surfaces modifications can be used independently or in combination to achieve improved performance and extended component life. They are being successfully used in a number of applications including:
