The Basics Of Induction Hardening Metal Parts And Components

While often used on steel, induction hardening can also be used on a wide range of different alloys. It is used across all industries and is an ideal option when specific areas or features on a part or component need to be hardened without the same process used across all surfaces. During the process, only the parts that are subjected to the induction process have the surface change. As this is online done on the surface layers, there...

Why Annealing Stainless Steel Is Often The Best Option

There are many different heat treatments which can be used on stainless steels and other types of steels. Choosing the right option is often more complicated than just choosing a single process for all parts and components. In working with stainless steel, there are several reasons why heat treatments are selected. One of the most commonly selected heat treatments is annealing, with normalizing also used on a frequent basis. Annealing...

When To Use Boronizing For Surface Hardening

An application where wear and tear, high temperature and the possibility of corrosion from acids is a problem, finishing of parts using specialized process can extend their life cycle significantly. A Simple Explanation For these types of demanding applications, one option in a surface hardening treatment processes is boronizing or boriding. This method uses heat, typically at about 900 degrees Celcius, combined with the presence of a...
