Who Should Use Flame Hardening
Literally thousands of applications can be found for flame hardening. Its versatility makes it a natural for applications which must provide surface protection for parts that may be curved or straight, light or heavy, or cannot be economically hardened by other methods. It doesn't matter if parts are large, small or intricate. Any time a part is subjected to excessive wear, flame hardening can make that surface wear better.
Typical Industrial Applications
In this method, the surface to be hardened is scanned, heated, and immediately quenched at a uniform speed. Speed depends on the desired depth of hardness.
Here, a part is surrounded by the flame heads and heated while being spun rapidly. When it reaches the proper temperature, it is lowered into, or sprayed with, the appropriate quenching media.
New High-Tech Spin Hardening:
Utilizing automated gas flow control, infrared temperature control, and available cycle charting, we can increase efficiency and guarantee consistency.
Combination - Spinning and Progressive:
As the name implies, this technique combines the two methods to provide uniform heating and quenching of a rotating part.
