Thermal regeneration is a proven technology that is
generally accepted as the most efficient means of heating an industrial
furnace. But regenerative systems, though commonplace, are far from the norm in
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.
Although many companies across the globe have managed to
become much greener and in the process have begun saving, it usually takes a
significant investment of both time and money and is often a very difficult
transition. Change can be painful and cumbersome to production, and in heat
treating, slowing production can be extremely detrimental to the bottom line.
socioeconomic state of the U.S. and its trade partners is the primary force
driving technology within the tube-and-pipe industry. Global infrastructure
expansion, growing demands by economic development and aggressive pursuit of
material performance are impacting material choice, chemical composition and
heat-treat process control.
Traditionally, case carburizing has been used to harden
very large workpieces such as slewing rings, ring gears and bearing races. The
carburizing process is straightforward and has been well understood for many
By combining advanced software with a sophisticated engineering background, induction heating professionals possess the unique ability to analyze, in few hours, complex technological problems that could take days or even weeks to solve by running experiments or through physical modeling using the pilot models.
