Ask Not What Your Heat Treater Can Do for You...By Alex Cannella, Associate Editor
When sending gears to be heat treated, manufacturers can end up unwittingly making mistakes that slow down turn-around time. We talked to some heat treaters to get their best advice on how you can help them help you.
Metrology is what WE doThe accuracy of our all-granite, air bearing systems provides you unparalleled consistency over the life of the machine. Our intuitive software enables you to simply monitor your process and deliver quality products to your customer, guaranteed.
Gear Nitriding in Vacuum
Vacuum gas nitride processing from Solar Atmospheres can significantly increase the fatigue strength and service life of your parts. Benefits include case depths up to 0.025" and improved wear and anti-galling properties due to a 40 - 70% increase in surface hardness. Corrosion resistance is increased through nitrogen-enrichment.
