Heat treatment furnaces are the essential key to varying the properties of steel over a wide or localised range, making it suitable for a wide number of applications.
Traditionally the process has been carried out in energy hungry, fuel fired furnaces which do not provide the ability to control the regions to be hardened. Typically, batch processes have required long heating times and some degree of skilled labour, with certain treatments such as carburising often needing special expensive alloy steels.
By contrast, induction heat treatment is accomplished by inducting electric currents within metal parts and can reduce many process times to minutes or even seconds, providing substantial energy savings.
Induction's ability to concentrate heat in localised regions results in a hardened surface of controllable depth, backed by a less brittle core, combining the features of surface wear resistance with general strength and virtually no distortion.
