By using a coil-shaped conductor made of copper, induction hardening generates an electromagnetic field into which the material is placed. This creates an electrical voltage in the material itself, which in turn generates heat. As a result, the material receives the necessary hardening temperature. Both warming up time and time at temperature are reached quite quickly. The temperature can be regulated by the current strength on the coil-shaped conductor and by the duration of the power supply.
Induction Hardening offers a cost-effective low distortion surface hardening treatment to steels, particularly large components where an increase in surface hardness is required whilst maintaining core properties.
We have a hugely comprehensive range of handling equipment, which includes horizontal and vertical fixtures and the ability to manufacture special handling equipment to your individual requirements for small batch or high-volume production.
