IMTS 2018: A Field GuideChicago Preps for the Next Manufacturing Technology Extravaganza
By Matthew Jaster, Senior Editor
The International Manufacturing Technology Show is once again upon us. Soon, Chicago will be overrun with grinding, inspection, automation, robotics and metalworking technologies that could potentially change the way your shop conducts business overnight. Itâ€™s a pretty big deal in the manufacturing sector. We recently caught up with Peter Eelman, vice president of exhibitions and communications for AMT, to discuss IMTS 2018.
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.
Low cost, high precision nitriding solution
For gear heat treaters seeking an exceptionally high quality nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing solution, SECO/VACUUMâ€™s innovative ZeroFlowÂ® process reduces operating costs and offers improved quality of the resulting nitrided layers.
