WHAT IS INDUCTION HARDENING?

When you have a program where only selective areas of a component needs to be hardened, induction hardening may be necessary. Copper coils are custom made for the particular component heat treat needs; alternating current is then used to selectively heat the surface. A quenchant is introduced to harden the particular surface area.

Common materials heat treated using induction hardening are:

1045

4140

4340

1141

1144

Note: It is possible to use other steels but may need to be carburized only to the required case depth then induction harden.

INDUCTION ANNEALING

There are various reasons a part may need to be selectively softene. The set-up and concept for induction annealing are the same as required for an induction hardening process; the difference is no quenchant is added to the cycle. By not quenching the selective area the component will be slow cooled and softening occurs in the area.
