Rising fuel prices and emission standards are constantly pushing automotive manufacturers toward more efficient vehicles. Many automotive components endure severe frictional forces and elevated temperatures. These facts are particularly evident in rear axles, where unfavorable conditions combined with the lack of proper break-in procedures lead to severe damage and efficiency losses.

REM's Isotropic Superfinish (ISF®) Process provides much needed durability and fuel economy relief for vehicle manufacturers, and subsequently car owners. REM has successfully developed a host of new high volume, high speed mass finishing processes specifically to meet the high production demands of the automotive industry. These ISF processes are robust, easy to automate and are tightly controlled to preserve the component's geometrical integrity.

Some of the Many Automotive Applications Utilizing REM's ISF Process:

  • Rear Axles
  • Gearboxes
  • Bearings
  • Heavy Axle Ring and Pinions
  • Heavy Duty Trucks
  • Buses
  • Motorcycles
  • Recreational Vehicles
  • Golf Carts, ATV's, and Snowmobiles
  • Bicycles
