  3. Machining: CNC machining is employed for high-precision plastic gears.
  4. Molding: Compression or transfer molding techniques for specific gear shapes.
  5. Sintering: Powdered plastic material is compressed and heated to form gears with high strength.

Choosing the Right Plastic Gear:

  1. Consider load capacity and torque requirements for your robotics application.
  2. Choose the appropriate material based on environmental conditions and chemical exposure.
  3. Ensure compatibility with other gear components in the system.
  4. Size and design of the gear should align with the robotics project specifications.
  5. Cost-effectiveness and long-term durability should be taken into account.

Tips in using the plastic gear:

  1. Regularly inspect gears for wear and tear to prevent unexpected failures.
  2. Properly lubricate gears to ensure smooth operation and extend their lifespan.
  3. Avoid overloading the gears beyond their recommended capacity to prevent damage.
  4. Follow manufacturer’s guidelines for installation and maintenance of plastic gears.
  5. Consider using gear guards or shields to protect plastic gears from debris or contaminants.

Lubrication of plastic gears:
