Induction hardening uses induced heat and rapid cooling (quenching) to increase the hardness and durability of steel. It is a no-contact process that quickly produces intense, localised, and controllable heat. Induction is being used to harden numerous components, such as gears, crankshafts, camshafts, drive shafts, output shafts, torsion bars, rocker arms, CV joints, tulips, valves, rock drills, slewing rings, and inner and outer races.
- A fast and repeatable process that integrates easily into production lines
- Clean, safe, energy-efficient, and typically with a small footprint
- Individually treated workpieces; each piece is hardened to its precise specification
