Low Pressure Carburizing with High Pressure Gas Quenching
The article "Low Pressure Carburizing with High Pressure Gas Quenching" appeared in the March/April 2004 issue of Gear Technology.
High demands for cost-effectiveness and improved product quality can be achieved via a new low pressure carburizing process with high pressure gas quenching. Up to 50% of the heat treatment time can be saved. Furthermore, the distortion of the gear parts could be reduced because of gas quenching, and grinding costs could be saved. This article gives an overview of the principles of the process technology and the required furnace technology. Also, some examples of practical applications are presented.
