Powertrain and suspension components require
toughness to handle the worst of everyday driving and high-precision mechanical
characteristics to accurately transmit road conditions and driving dynamics to
the driver. This paradox can be resolved with inductively hardened modern
automotive components. The manufacturing of these high-performance components
is accomplished by a sophisticated induction hardening machine with the
flexibility to harden a variety of disparate parts.
