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.

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.

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.
