Induction hardening offers excellent hardness distribution with minimal defects
Induction hardening offers significant advantages over traditional methods for heat-treating steel, alloy, and other metal parts. This process is perfect for metal with a carbon content of more than 0.3%, particularly hardened steel with a low alloy content (C34, C35, C60, etc.), as described in the DIN EN 100083 industry norm. Shafts, gears, armatures, sprockets and other components can all be hardened using this induction process.
The process is very demanding on the equipment and the inductor used. Ideal hardening results can only be achieved by perfectly matching a precisely controlled energy source with an optimum inductor design. eldec's experienced engineers custom design the induction coils to meet customer unique specifications, including single turn, two-turn, face-heating, clamshell, and clamp inductors. Every machine is completely inspected and tested to ensure optimum power and heat settings.
