Webinar: Quenching in 4 Dimensions!In this webinar presented from SECO/VACUUM, we will show how quenching in 4 dimensions, where multiple high-pressure gas jets are applied to a rotating part in a single-piece flow process, can produce up to 1 million perfectly uniform gears per year. Learn how to control distortion and reduce waste in your heat treat process.

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.
