The gears include sun gears, pinion gears and annulus gears. Bodycote will use various surface technologies to improve their performance, including low pressure vacuum carburising with high-speed gas quenching, partial pressure nitride and precision shot peening.

In addition, a measurement laboratory will be used to quantify dimensional movement during process development and long-term production. Bodycote is making significant investment in Mexico to support this new project.
