Metal Case Hardening
Zion is a leading provider of induction heating services, including induction hardening, with plants in Michigan, North Carolina and Ohio. Case hardening is a metal heat treatment process that offers a controllable and localized method of heat without contact to the metal parts or components being heated. The heat is generated by inducing an electric current to flow into a specific area of a part. This provides an economical, targeted and rapid heat treating of conductive materials.
Why use induction hardening?
Induction hardening is favored for parts that are subject to heavy loading. Typical applications include axles, saw blades, shafts, stampings, spindles, gears and most symmetrical parts. This method is widely used for surface hardening steel, but can be used with other materials including:
- Carbon steels
- Alloy steels
- Stainless steels
- Powder metal
- Cast iron
