Experts in Copper Coil Heating to Increase Metal Hardness
Induction hardening is a type of surface hardening in which a metal part is placed inside a copper coil to be heated above their transformation temperature and then quenched. The quenched metal undergoes a martensitic transformation, increasing the hardness and brittleness of the part. Induction hardening is used to selectively harden areas of a part or assembly without affecting the properties of the part as a whole.
Induction hardening offers users outstanding control and reproducibility over the hardening process and results of individual workpieces. For another option check out our case hardening services.
