Heat Treating Articles from the ArchiveThe Michael Goldstein Gear Technology Library includes decades of technical and feature articles on every subject related to gears. This month, we take a look at some of the more recent articles on gear heat treating:
- Improving Cost Efficiency in Heat Treatment
- Chamfering: Hard vs Soft Parts and Before vs After Heat Treating
- Moving Heat Treating In-Line
- Sensitivity Study of Press Quench Process and Concept of Tooling Design for Reduced Distortion by Modeling
Forging Near-Net Precision to Save Time & MoneyHigh-precision forging processes can significantly improve gear consistency and durability, which, in turn, can reduce required cycle times and improve part performance in the field. Learn more with our white paper, Steel Forging Processes to Save Time & Money: 5 Ways High-Precision Forging Can Reduce Machining Time and Costs.
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.
New! ECM Eco Furnace: Replace Sealed Quench or IQ
The new ECM Eco Furnace System makes heat treating a cleaner, safer, and more efficient operation: reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions & eliminate open flames. This compact installation aims to replace sealed quench or IQ furnaces for hardening or carburizing & easily integrates into existing batch lines. 262-605-4810 www.ecm-usa.com
Vacuum carburizing with gas quench and no oil
Low-pressure carburizing is the future of case hardening, and many materials can be carburized and quenched without oil. Vectorâ„˘ high pressure gas quench vacuum furnaces handle a wide range of heat treatment processes to support the specialty gear industry.
