Heat-Treat TrendsBy Joseph L. Hazelton, Contributing Editor
The U.S. heat treat industry is in the middle of a labor shortage. Here's a look at what companies in the industry are doing about it. Plus, a look at some other trends affecting the heat treating industry.
LEASE Your Vacuum Furnace - ECM Dual Chamber
The ICBPÂ® Pitless Duo vacuum furnace by ECM (with two independent chambers separated by a vacuum-tight door) is now available to lease! Quenching can be oil (hot or cold) or gas (up to 20 bar). Perfect for carburizing, hardening, brazing, carbonitriding, and is AMS2750E compatible. Contact ECM today! 262.605.4810 www.ecm-usa.com
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 0.025â€ť and improved wear and anti-galling properties due to a 40 - 70% increase in surface hardness. Corrosion resistance is increased through nitrogen-enrichment.
