Induction tempering


Tempering is a process able to decrease the hardness, strength and increases the toughness of hardened steels, while removes the tensions created in the temple, leaving the steel with the required hardness.

The traditional tempering system consists of heating the parts at relatively low temperatures (from 150ºC to 500°C, always below the lineAC1) for a while and then let them cool slowly.

Induction tempering advantages

  • Shorter times in the process.
  • Temperature control.
  • Integration in production lines.
  • Energy saving.
  • Immediate availability of parts.
  • Saves floor space.
  • Improved environmental conditions.
