Advantages of Chamfering

Chamfering of cylindrical gear profiles has, traditionally, taken a back seat to the primary cutting and finishing processes. The common wisdom was that the process added to cost but had little impact on part quality. All of that is now changing. There is a fast-growing appreciation for chamfering, as manufacturers recognize the significant handling and processing advantages it offers downstream when chamfers and gear flanks remain burr-free and can be produced according to required specifications.

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.

4D Quench: Save $$$ on Distortion-Free Parts

4D Quench: Save $$$ on Distortion-Free Parts

Many techniques have been developed over the years to reduce heat treat distortion. It’s time for something better. SECO/VACUUM's 4D Quench® single-piece flow furnace takes parts from your machining center, heat treats them in vacuum, quenches using multiple high pressure gas jets as the part rotates (the 4th dimension), and delivers them to the next process, distortion-free.
