Carburizing Optimization & ECD Precise Control

As discussed in the September/October 2016 Metal Urgency column , carburizing is a nonsteady-state diffusion process and thus can be expressed by Fick’s second...

Carbon Diffusion and Carburizing Parameter Selection

Although carburizing is a complicated process, it can be broken down into two main steps: carbon generation in the furnace and carbon diffusion into...

Carburizing

While some heat treatments are used to soften the material or improve its machinability, most are processed to obtain strengthened or hardened properties. The...

Hardening and tempering in the same cell

Tempering hardened steels is one of the most important heat treating processes used in part manufacturing. Induction tempering produces hardness and mechanical properties similar...

Materials Selection for Induction Hardening Processes

Induction hardening is the most common technique of the various types of applied energy processing. It uses alternating current that induces a magnetic field...

Different Scales Are Used For Rockwell Hardness Testing

Production Bench Rockwell Hardness Testing of Small Work Pieces As induction hardened workpieces get smaller in size, attention to the proper abrasive cutting of the...

Some workpieces are too large and expensive to fit into conventional benchtop hardness testers

Portable Rockwell Hardness Testing of Large Induction Hardened Work Pieces The previous article identified many factors related to benchtop Rockwell hardness testing practices. This article...

Testing of Induction Hardened Work Pieces

Hardness testing is a simple and universally accepted practice for checking induction hardened parts and is performed in literally thousands of manufacturing facilities. There...

Induction Hardening Choices for Gears

Of the various types of applied energy processing, induction hardening is the most common. Induction heating is a process that uses an alternating electrical...

Compelling reasons normalizing produces high quality gears

In this day and age, adding steps to the gear manufacturing process is not highly desirable unless the benefits far outweigh the costs incurred....
