This stainless steel crankshaft gear made by Capstan Atlantic won an award of distinction in the hardware-and-appliances category. Used in a residential standby generator, this 18-tooth helical gear is initially produced to an AGMA Class 7 quality. But Capstan brings the gear up to a Class 10 quality with subsequent boring, facing, broaching and gear rolling steps. The gear winds up with a density of 7.0 g/cm3, a yield strength above 450 MPa, a tensile strength of 520 MPa, and an apparent hardness range of 52-60 HRA.
