Transmission components are subjected to high operational loads and can be exposed to extreme environments. Many parts are hardened to attain the required strength, whilst others are hardened just in local areas. Laser surface hardening enables the right combination of surface hardness and core ductility for transmission components.

Benefits

  • Local laser hardening of transmission components exposed to wear for fully functional performance.
  • Laser heat treatment of surfaces that are exposed to deformations during assembly and transport.
  • Maximum flexibility for small batches of similar components with different requirements.

Gears and shafts are other components perfectly suitable for laser hardening. Thanks to the flexibility offered by the laser heat treatment different areas in the same components can be treated to achieve different hardening requirements in case depth and hardness.
