Heat treating is a process used to alter the physical and sometimes chemical properties of materials, typically metals, through controlled heating and cooling. The purpose of heat treating is to improve the material's mechanical properties, such as hardness, strength, toughness, and ductility, while also enhancing its resistance to wear, corrosion, and fatigue. The heat treating

Why Choose Induction Hardening?

Why Choose Induction Hardening? Induction hardening is a specialized heat treating process used to selectively harden specific areas of a metal component. It is commonly employed for parts that require high surface hardness, such as gears, shafts, camshafts, and various machine components. Induction hardening provides localized hardening while retaining the toughness and ductility
