Gears are a common part type for applications of the magnetic Barkhausen noise (MBN) techniques for nondestructive inspection. This article discusses the typical applications for MBN techniques, namely, detection of grinding retemper burn, evaluation of residual stresses, and detection of heat treatment defects, including the evaluation of case depth.
