Induction Hardening and tempering

Induction Hardening and tempering Surface Process Induction Hardening Induction Hardening is a process of heating followed by cooling generally fast for increase hardness and mechanical strength of steel. To this end, the steel is heated to a temperature slightly higher than the upper critical (between 850-900ºC) and then cooled more or less quickly (depending on … Read more

Induction Hardening Surface Process

Induction Hardening Surface Process Applicatons What is induction hardening ? Induction hardening is a form of heat treatment in which a metal part with sufficient carbon content is heated in the induction field and then rapidly cooled. This increases both the hardness and brittleness of the part. Induction heating allows you to have localized heating to a … Read more
