BALINIT C (WC/C) coating of planetary gear elements
Gears have similar wear situations to roller bearings, therefore the BALINIT C (WC/C) coating also delivers significant improvement against scuffing and pitting. Coating the planets is an efficient way to improve the reliability of the planetary gear.
