HE Horizontal Single Shot Induction Hardening

With horizontal "single shot" induction hardening machines, axis, semi-axis, steering racks and similar parts can be treated and hardened automatically. Our systems simplify integration of the induction hardening process into automatic manufacturing lines.

The single shot hardening process can be utilized for parts with virtually any geometric figure and heating zone location. With our HE machines, a numeric control system automatically governs the process. This maintains a high degree of accuracy, consistency and part quality. The basic installation consists of:

• Transithermic® induction heating power supply
• Cooling equipment for heating system and hardening liquid
• Numerical control system
• Stars or axis HE handling machine
• Manual or automatic load/unload system

HS Horizontal Scanning Induction Hardening

HS Horizontal Scanning Induction Hardening

With induction hardening via horizontal scanning, axis, semi-axis, steering racks and similar parts can be treated and hardened automatically. Our systems simplify integration of the process into automatic manufacturing lines.

The utilization of scanning technology offers great flexibility for processing parts of different lengths and similar diameters. With our HS induction hardening machines, a numeric control system automatically governs the hardening process in two-by-two or three-by-three configurations. This maintains a high degree of accuracy, consistency and part quality. The basic installation consists of:

• Transithermic induction heating power supply
• Cooling equipment for heating system and hardening liquid
• Numerical control system
• 2 or 3 axis HS handling machine
• Manual or automatic load/unload system

SCT Centerless Horizontal Hardening Machine

SCT Centerless Horizontal Hardening Machine with Roller Train

Our SCT Horizontal Hardening machines are designed for heating either a specific section of the part or the entire axis, according to the centerless principle with conveyor rollers.

During the hardening process, the part is moved through two roller trains, arranged vertically one over one.The part rotates on the rollers for consistent hardening on all surfaces.

SCT installations include a numerical control system which automatically governs the hardening process with accuracy and consistency.
