The REM Isotropic Superfinish (ISF®) Process is a value adding and performance enhancing improvement to conventional machining operations such as grinding and lapping. The extensive benefits of the ISF Process add value and improve performance across a wide range of industries.

  • Planet Gear Before

    Reduce Friction
  • Increase Part Durability
  • Improve Corrosion Resistance
  • Reduce Wear
  • Reduce Lubrication Requirements and Cost
  • Improve Oil Retention Properties
  • Reduce Contact and Bending Fatigue
  • Improve Pitting Resistance
  • Reduce Vibration and Noise
  • Reduce Applied Torque Requirements
  • Produce a Uniform Surface Finish
  • Produce a Superior Surface Finish

Operational Advantages:

  • Planet Gear AfterEliminate Break-in
  • Extend Component Life
  • Reduce Metal Debris
  • Reduce Part Failures
  • Minimize Overheating

Why the ISF Process is important to any application:

  • Less inertia = Less friction = Less fuel consumed
  • Reduction of friction of metal to metal contact parts = Less wear and contact fatigue.
  • Lower operating temperatures = Increased power output and efficiency
  • Increased power density = options of larger engines or smaller transmissions
  • Increased durability = Lower replacement costs and fewer failures

Additional Benefits:

  • Improved bending fatigue resistance
  • Reduced lubrication maintenance
  • Quieter operation
  • Reduces rotational torque
  • No metallurgical degradation
  • No geometrical degradation
