The article "Controlling Gear Distortion and Residual Stresses During Induction Hardening" appeared in the March/April 2012 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Induction hardening is widely used in both the automotive and aerospace gear industries to minimize heat treat distortion and obtain favorable compressive residual stresses for improved fatigue performance. The heating process during induction hardening has a significant effect on the quality of the heat-treated parts. However, the quenching process often receives less attention even though it is equally important.
