The Automotive-Transmission award of distinction went to a two-part assembly (sprocket assembly-drive and sprocketdriven). The three-level sprocket from Capstan Atlantic, Wrentham, Mass., serves in an SUV transfer case. And it features a precision-machined tooth radius, hub diameter, and tapered inside diameter. The sprocket is made from a modified MPIF FL-4405 PM material to a density of 7.4 gm/cm3 with an apparent hardness of 45 HRC. And its tensile strength exceeds 200 kpsi. The sprockets are carbo-nitrided for tooth wear resistance.
