  • No more "girlie man " gears
    . have all spec'd plastic over metal in recent electronic-parkingbrake gears. The brakes employ 1.2-in. (30-mm) spur gears made from Fortron linear polyphenylene sulfide (PPS). A motor-drive belt powers the gear that drives a transmission for actuating the rear brakes. Designers chose Fortron PPS
  • Planetary reducers eliminate machining step to keep costs down
    with three planet gears. Such configurations tend to last longer than parallel-shaft spur geartrains and better handle larger continuous and peak torque. Tough involute gears are pressed net shape from a sinter-hardened, powder metal which eliminates secondary machining and the associated cost. Another
