Sensitivity Study of Press Quench Process and Concept of Tooling Design for Reduced Distortion by Modeling - July 2018

The article "Sensitivity Study of Press Quench Process and Concept of Tooling Design for Reduced Distortion by Modeling" appeared in the July 2018 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Press quenching is designed to harden steel gears while minimizing distortion, and the process is especially applied for hardening large diameter thin-wall gears, face gears and bevel gears. The dimensional control aims at maintaining flatness, out-of-round, straightness and consistency of radial size. The press quench tooling and the process design have been mainly experience-based, using a trial and error approach for implementation of new processes, new gear materials and gear configurations.
