Induction Heat Treating Services

Induction Heat Treatment Process

With 6 induction heat treating machines, we soften or harden metal through targeted heating, hardening, tempering, or annealing. We specialize in induction heat treating a range of metal parts, such as drive shafts, bearings, axel shafts, camshafts, and sprockets.

Induction Annealing for Metals

Our induction heat treatment process is best suited for enhancing the ductility of steel, stainless steel, and carbon steel parts without compromising on the dimensional stability of the materials. In addition, our induction heating process is environmentally friendly and offers higher heating intensity compared to conventional metal treatment techniques.

Induction Hardening Capabilities

Factors such as electrical properties of pieces, the coupling efficiency of coils, and the degree of temperature change required are taken into consideration during induction heat treatment. Our Zion Z scan induction heat treater features a 6 position rotary index table and easy-to-maintain hydraulics. The Zion Z scan induction heat treater is capable of heat treating pieces with diameters up to 1 1/4" and lengths up to 20".
