Abstract:To increase the power density of the CVT, higher forces must be transferred through the CVT elements, which requires the use of an alternative material with improved fatigue properties. This study compares the tribological behavior of the new material with the current material and evaluates its possible use as element material in CVT. The study was carried on by literature research and material testing with a universal tribotester. The study concludes that the use of the new material (100Cr6 steel) is suitable for use and improves on the mechanical properties of the current material used.
