However, if the power density is substantially increased keeping the same frequency and heat time decreased, it could result in more intense heating of the root area instead of the tooth tip. Nitriding is therefore not one of the classical surface hardening methods by means of microstructure transformation. There are several types of quenching in accordance with cooling conditions; oil quenching, water quenching, and spray quenching. Seamless induction hardening of large rings and gears.

By varying speed and power it is possible to create a shaft which is hardened along its whole length or just in specific areas and also to harden shafts with steps in diameter or splines. Examples of frequencies for various case depths and material diameters Case depth [mm]. Review of inductor designs and selection of process protocols. For the actual hardening process, the steel is then heated again in a separate process step.

During gas carburizing, the component is exposed to a carbon-containing atmosphere. Figure: Flame hardening of a surface The thickness of the hardened surface layer depends on the speed at which the burner flames are moved over the workpiece surface called feed. If the tooth strength is not sufficient, it can be increased approximately four times by heat-treating. In direct hardening, the heated steel is quenched directly from the carburized state! There is a common misunderstanding regarding the ability to apply the widely published cooling curves to induction hardening applications using spray quenching. With case hardening, low-carbon steels are first enriched with carbon in the surface layer carburisation and then quenched!

The part is then cooled rapidly by quenching to form a crystal structure that is much more resistant to deformation than the unhardened steel. The induction system moves the coil at a pre-programmed rate along the length of the gear. Traverse hardening is used extensively in the production of shaft type components such as axle shafts, excavator bucket pins, steering components, power tool shafts and drive shafts.

Our unique coil design means we can considerably reduce the height of the lines. These two major factors in combination with electromagnetic proximity effect result in greater heat intensity at the tip, with a corresponding temperature rise and deeper case depth upon quenching.

The process achieves true contour hardening of small gears in well under a second. Because of safety concerns, the use of oil quenchants with spray quenching is not recommended. With case hardening, low-carbon steels are first enriched with carbon in the surface layer carburisation and then quenched!

Flame or induction hardening are processes in which the surface of the steel is heated very rapidly to high temperatures by direct application of an oxy-gas flame, or by induction heating then cooled rapidly, generally using water; this creates a "case" of martensite on the surface.

Traditionally this was done using a series of graphs, complex empirical calculations and experience. Besides that, the tip of the tooth has a substantially smaller mass of metal to be heated, compared with the dedendum and in particularly root area, where a much larger thermal heat sink is located.

These types of application normally use a hairpin coil or a transverse flux coil which sits over the edge of the component.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION OF HELICAL GEARS

Heat Time When applying encircling coils, there are five parameters that play a dominant role in obtaining the required hardness pattern: frequency, power, heat time, quenching conditions, and coil geometry. It was already understood that the depth of current penetration in steel was a function of its magnetic permeability, resistivity and the frequency of the applied field.

Courtesy of Inductoheat Inc. For gear products, induction hardening is effective to harden tooth areas including tooth surface and the tip, however, the root may not be hardened in some cases. The most common methods for hardening gears and sprockets are by single shot Figure 2 or the tooth-by-tooth method Figure 3.

At a utility frequency of 50 Hz, hardening depth in the range of 20 mm to 10 mm can be achieved. It determines in the work-piece a tough core with tensile residual stresses and a hard surface layer with compressive stresswhich have proved to be very effective in extending the component fatigue life and wear resistance.

On the other hand, the precision of the gear will drop about one grade. Materials selection for induction gear hardening, including specifics of electromagnetic induction vs. HardLine heat treatment solutions for hardening of large rings and gears EFD Induction offers hardening solutions for virtually any dimension of raceways, balltracks and gears.

The carbon can come from a solid, liquid or gaseous source; if it comes from a solid source the process is called pack carburizing.

What makes it so effective? Disadvantages : Special gear cutting or grinding machines are required for processing each helix angle. The module of tooth datum orthogonal to the thread helix is called normal module.

In order to harden even such thin-walled workpieces only on their surface in the range of a few tenths of a millimetre, so-called induction hardening can be used.Induction hardening of large gears Gear performance characteristics (in-cluding load condition and operating environment) dictate the required sur-face and core hardness, hardness pro-file.

induction scanning systems for the hardening of sun gears EFD Induction USA has recently won major orders from two American tier-one automotive suppliers. The orders involve EFD Induction ‘HardLine’ type induction scanning systems for the hardening of sun gears and output shafts.

They allow to control the temperature distribution, which must be adapted to the contour of hardness, which should be obtained. In the case of gears, hardening takes place on the surface: this applies to both the side surface, and the tooth tip and root.

External spur and helical gears, bevel and worm gears, racks and sprockets are commonly induction hardened from steels such as,, and The most common methods for hardening gears and sprockets are by single shot (Figure 2). Straight gears, helical gears, internal splines, external splines, broaching, hobbing, carburizing, and induction hardening are all well within our capabilities.
