Hardening (gear wheels, shafts, gear shafts)


Hardening is a process when steel (a blank, in this case – the machined forging of a gear wheel, shaft or gear shaft) is heated above the critical point and then quickly cooled.

Gear wheels, shafts and gear shafts hardening – Technolit Int. Hardened gear wheels – finished parts

Hardening is conducted to achieve phases of supersaturated solid solution with the distorted lattice (martensite) instead of a mechanical mixture. Hardening makes steel harder and stronger, though less ductile.

Wheels hardening – Technolit Int.

Technolit Int. offers the hardening of parts (forged gear wheels, shafts and gear shafts) produced at own facilities and of parts (forgings) produced by a customer.
