Induction hardening is used in particular for the hardening of bearing surfaces and shafts as well as intricately shaped parts where only a specific area needs to be heated.
Through the choice of the operating frequency of the induction heating system, the resulting depth of penetration is defined.
Additionally, it can be decided if the area is to be hardened in the air, with water or with a special hardening emulsion. Depending on the cooling medium, different degrees of hardness are achieved.
Induction hardening can be realized as a manual or automated solution. There is also the possibility to harden in a continuous process.
