Case hardening process used to increase wear resistance, surface hardness and fatigue life through creation of a hardened surface layer while maintaining an unaffected core microstructure. Induction hardening is used to increase the mechanical properties of ferrous components in a specific area. Typical applications are powertrain, suspension, engine components and stampings. Induction hardening is excellent at repairing warranty claims / field failures. The primary benefits are improvements in strength, fatigue and wear resistance in a localised area without having to redesign the component. Benefits of induction hardening Favoured for components that are subjected to heavy loading. Induction imparts a high surface hardness with a deep case capable of handling extremely high loads. Fatigue strength is increased by the development of a soft core surrounded by an extremely tough outer layer. These properties are desirable for parts that experience torsional loading and surfaces that experience impact forces. Induction processing is performed one part at a time allowing for very predictable dimensional movement from part to part. Application & materials Induction hardening is a heat treatment process carried out to enhance the mechanical properties in a localised area of a ferrous component. The resultant hardened area improves the wear and fatigue resistances along with strength characteristics. Typical applications of induction hardening include gears, shafts, axles, cam lobes, stampings, and spindles, mostly symmetrical parts. Induction hardening is used to strengthen a specific area of a part. Single piece, surface hardening of selective areas.
