Gear Carburizing in Vacuum

Gear Carburizing in Vacuum

Solar Atmospheres provides low pressure vacuum carburizing (LPVC) that significantly increases the surface hardness/strength of steel parts for improved friction and wear. Performing LPVC in a vacuum furnace eliminates oxygen and prevents IGO (intergranular oxidation) that is inherent in atmospheric carburizing, resulting in clean parts with less distortion reducing post process finishing operations, and costs.

Vacuum + oil quench solves demanding requirements

Vacuum + oil quench solves demanding requirements

Gear heat treatment demands high metallurgical quality and repeatability, attributes that are best performed in vacuum. In addition, oil quenching permits fast, uniform quenching of dense, tightly packed loads, which improves throughput. The CaseMaster EvolutionĀ® vacuum furnace from SECO/VACUUM combines the best of both worlds.

V300e – More would almost be too much

V300e – More would almost be too much

The V300 is WMZ's solution for the flexible multi-technology machining of components from small and large series production - especially shafts with gear teeth.

Due to the low depth of engagement of <550 mm, the machine can be easily converted and can therefore be used flexibly.
