A Short Intro to Induction Hardening

Induction hardening is a traditional method that strengthens metal components used in a variety of industries. It’s a process that results in a very high surface hardness for metal materials, making it ideal for use in the production of components that are subjected to heavy loading. Here’s a brief introduction to induction hardening methods and […]

The Pros and Cons of Induction Hardening

Induction hardening is a type of heat treating method in which you selectively and rapidly harden a metal surface. In the process, you place a copper coil that carries an alternating current near the part, but not directly touching it. Heat is generated close to the surface with eddy current and hysteresis losses. Then, a […]
