The contact fatigue performance of two pairs of case carburised gears with either an as-ground or superfinished surface finish was studied. This comparison test was carried out using a back-to-back gear test rig. Test results showed that superfinished gears provided an enhanced contact fatigue resistance with only the development of minor scratches and light micropitting after running, while as-ground gears failed through a sequence of initial micropitting, progressive micropitting, macropitting and scuffing.
