Keywords: gear transmission, composite substitutes, material properties


The article discusses the materials currently used for transmission elements as an alternative to traditionally used bearing, alloy and special steels, for carburizing and for improvement. The material properties were presented, the possibilities of their implementation were discussed, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of their application. A comparative analysis of the proposed materials was made. The possible development directions have been indicated.
