Kore Industries Core Principles: What Are The Gear Quality Standard?

Kore Industries prioritizes quality in producing plastic gears above all else. This is why we always stick to AGMA gear quality standards when manufacturing any type of gear. This ensures that each and every spur, pinion gear, or worm gear, to start with, will meet customer needs.

Setting standards that we can meet or even exceed is extremely important in the manufacturing process. Plastic gears, parts, casings, and accessories are often used in very demanding fields. 

If they are not precise enough, smooth enough, strong enough, or well-designed, they could cause accidents, malfunctions, or delays.

What is the AGMA Standard?

AGMA stands for American Gear Manufacturers Association. It’s a group composed of industry experts, consultants, and academics.

One of the biggest roles of this association is the focus on the design of gears of every kind. Everything from the shape, size, materials, and use are under the purview of this grand organization.

To that end, any company that wants to be branded as a safe, reliable, and industry-holistic producer manufacturer of gears will need to meet their stringent standards.

In short, they need to be of AGMA quality

This will then assure customers that they will be getting exactly the kind of quality that they are looking for and that the manufacturer stands by their products. 

More importantly, AGMA gears are considered to be among the most prolific. This helps streamline manufacturing processes that require gears of any kind as essential parts.

How to Meet AGMA Standard

There are quite a few intricate and technical details involved with AGMA standards. Measurements, design, materials, the AGMA quality number, and more are taken into consideration. 

It’s worth pointing out that these standards do change over time for a few reasons. These include 

  1. Innovations in gear design.
  2. Changes in industry manufacturing 
  3. New discoveries in material engineering.
  4. Shifts in market prices and standards.
  5. Issues related to geopolitical and legislative matters.

More than anything else, though, the issue of meeting AGMA standard is largely concerned with the following aspects:

  1. Design
  2. Manufacturing
  3. Application

All of these relate to gears in some way, as well. For more context, the products that AGMA concerns itself with are components and equipment that are involved in power transmissions.

That is to say, anything that can transfer energy in the form of force from one point to the other or to multiple points. This is precisely what gears are about.

On the matter of how manufacturers would apply the standards set down by AGMA, it’s mostly a matter of purchasing the details from the association. Everything that is needed to know to adhere to the strict protocols and quality control imposed by the group is available for reading.

The details also contain information that includes product categories, names, models, numbers, and more. 

For companies who are thinking of creating their own manufacturing sectors and dabble in producing gears, those details are absolutely necessary. That is if they want to be taken seriously.

Why Kore Industries Uses AGMA Standard

Kore Industries has always made it a point to make sure that every single manufacturing contract is done through the highest standards and practices in the industry. 

More than that, we also have our own lofty standards and protocols that allow us to produce some truly top quality plastic gear.

As is the case with most manufacturing practices involved in producing equipment and parts for power transmission, precision plastic injection molding is under AGMA purview. 

This means that the group also has something to say about this manufacturing technology.

This generally involves matters such as:

  1. What technology is used.
  2. How it is used.
  3. What materials are used.
  4. What the production process is.
  5. The design of the molds.
  6. Quality control.
  7. What gears are produced.

By adhering to the standards that were set down by AGMA, it is much easier to streamline the gears that we produce for the various categories and products covered by the group. 

This means that there is an underlying understanding that uniformity can be expected across multiple industries. This also means that it is much easier to adopt the plastic gears that were produced using precision injection molding for wider use. 

Kore Industries bases many of the protocols that we have in place on the details that are provided by AGMA. At the same time, we also made sure to add our own standards that are most suitable for our services.

Our plastic gears service lets us produce any kind of gear for every need at low costs and high efficiency. 

After many years of serving clients, the vast majority of whom have stayed with us, we have adopted protocols and practices that allow for flexibility, efficiency, and reliability.

Summary

Kore Industries is in the business of producing high-quality plastic gears and we adhere to AGMA standard to do just that. This allows us to:

 

  1. Produce industry-grade gears.
  2. Manufacture strong, reliable, and high-quality gears.
  3. Implement efficient and safe production protocols.
  4. Provide customers with assurance via AGMA approval.
  5. Stick to necessary industry guidelines.

Whether we are making helical gears, worm gears, or whatever kind of power transmission parts, Kore Industries always prioritizes quality. AGMA standard helps set this trend of excellence and efficiency.
