Smart control system technology for low-pressure vacuum carburizing allows quick parameter selection without time-consuming experimenting, which is especially important for commercial heat-treating shops.
Low-pressure vacuum carburizing is a process characterized by irregular, changeable conditions. The process requires a new generation control system and new solutions in the area of parameters selection to optimize the carburizing/diffusion and high-pressure gas quenching stages. Seco/Warwick's Fine-Carb(r) smart control/software system allows quick, precise parameter selection based on computer simulation. The system uses a special algorithm based on the latest developments in material science and on the irregular chemical reactions that occur during the carburizing/diffusion stage.
