The SHarP-C stationary hardening process for auto engine crankshafts is done without any crankshaft rotation. The compact system uses only one quarter of the floor space of traditional systems, while providing four times the tooling life. Other advantages include low part distortion, simple operation, modular tooling, reliability, off-line part qualification, maintainability, and low cost.
