Harden the surface - reduce material costs
Electron beam hardening the surface layer allows for the precision targeting of defined surface areas for the improvement of wear resistance.
The procedure is directly applicable to components which are machined to finished size, avoiding production delays. Most steels - structural steel, stainless steel, duplex steel, grey cast iron and cast steel can be successfully hardened.
For your benefit
- The roughness of the surface is not affected and there is no discoloration or scaling of the surface in the clean vacuum environment of the electron beam chamber.
- The hardness achieved is normally well above that possible with conventional processes. The hardness results are completely reproducible and suitable for most mass manufacture.
- Since the hardening process lasts only a few seconds, it is highly efficient and economical.
