Transportation

For The Road Ahead

Transportation is entering an exciting new era. EV is in our future, requiring quiet-running transmission and drivetrain components designed for the acceleration, torque and reliability requirements of a new generation of electrical cars and trucks. Bronze gears play an important role in steering mechanisms, gear boxes, and gear-drive power transmission applications — and all roads lead to Fisher Barton and our Accurate Specialties bronze gear blanks. For those transportation components that require longer life and greater protection from wear and corrosion, Fisher Barton’s TST Engineered Coatings Solutions division is your source for engineered coatings to improve performance.

Automotive Industry - Motion Control

Wheels

Fisher Barton is your source for a variety of coatings to meet vehicle related application challenges. We can customize the solution to handle a combination of challenges, such as the wear, impact, and corrosion issues that are common to wheels. Our coatings can also be used to reduce weight and cost by changing the substrate material to a lighter, more cost effective material and using a coating to achieve the desired attributes of the part.

Wear Resistant Coating

Wear Plating

Understanding the factors that cause wear is critical to engineering the proper wear resistant coatings for the many wear products that exist in transportation. Fisher Barton and our TST Engineered Coatings Solutions division offer a unique expertise in materials engineering and the wear resistant properties of various materials and deposition methodologies. The combination of this knowledge provides application specific solutions to our customers’ wear problems.
