Induction hardening

A fast and efficient method with the possibility of hardening only the chosen fragments of the hardened material. High precision and repeatability of the process is provided by modern technology.

Induction hardening is a type of surface hardening which uses high frequency electrical current to heat up metal. This current is induced by a changing magnetic field. The method is used to harden carbon steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, or cast iron – grey, ductile, and malleable. It is commonly used to harden components of friction systems, which are subject to high torsional stresses.

Fast and efficient hardening

In the method of induction hardening the heating time is very short and the process itself does not cause the material to become contaminated. At the same time it is possible to harden only selected parts of the hardened detail. The method is popular due to its reliability: due to it material deformations are limited to the minimum. The CNC numerical control provides a very high hardening precision and repeatability of the process.


Hardening parameters

We harden shafts with the following dimensions:

  • Diameter to 100mm
  • Length to 1000mm
