Definition: Induction Hardening
Induction hardening - heat treatment with electricity - is an efficient process for many metalworking sectors. Foundries use the induction furnace to melt high-alloy steel or to keep cast iron hot. The automotive industry uses induction hardening machines or hardening systems to improve components. Inductive heat is generated directly in the workpiece by electrically induced eddy currents. Induction saves energy, reduces distortion and is quicker than other processes. At Surplex you will find used heat treatment machinery - also hardening machines with a recent year of manufacture from, for example, EMAG or INDUCTOHEAT!
