  3. Machining: Precision cutting of plastic material to create gears with high accuracy
  4. Molding: Forming plastic gears by compressing the material into shape
  5. Sintering: Utilizing heat and pressure to create durable plastic gears

Choosing the Right Plastic Gear for Watches:

  • Consider the gear module size for compatibility with the watch movement
  • Look for gears with high tooth strength to ensure longevity
  • Check for proper lubrication compatibility to reduce friction
  • Choose gears with minimal backlash for accurate timekeeping
  • Opt for gears made from high-quality plastic material for durability

Tips in using the plastic gear:

  1. Regularly clean and lubricate the gears to maintain smooth operation
  2. Avoid exposing the gears to extreme temperatures to prevent damage
  3. Handle the gears with care during installation to prevent deformation
  4. Inspect the gears periodically for signs of wear and replace if necessary
  5. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for proper maintenance of the gears

Lubrication of plastic gears:

  1. Use silicone-based lubricants for plastic gears to minimize friction
  2. Avoid using petroleum-based lubricants as they may degrade the plastic material
  3. Apply lubricant sparingly to prevent excess buildup and attracting dust
