Hardening is a process of heating followed by cooling generally fast for increase hardness and mechanical strength of steel. Induction hardening, using induction heating and quenching, provides an economical way to process shafts, gears, bearings, yokes, spindles, sprockets, wire, tube, pipe or other parts.
Tempering is a process able to decrease the hardness, strength and increases the toughness of hardened steels while removing the tensions created in the material, leaving the steel with the required hardness. A heating process that optimizes mechanical properties in workpieces that have already been hardened.
Brazing is a highly efficient way of joining dissimilar metal parts together. A filler material is applied and melted to form a fused piece. Filler materials come in many shapes and sizes. Induction brazing is ideal for high volume production due to its high efficiency and repeatability.
Induction annealing enables precise, fast and reliable control of metal material properties through recrystallization and controlled subsequent cooling. Induction annealing is mainly used for softening and stressrelieving of metals and offers enormous advantages over conventional methods.
