Heat treatments optimize the performance and extends the life of gears in service by altering properties.
Blaney Gears can provides a heat treatment service, a critical and complex element in the manufacturing of gears that greatly impacts how each will perform. Heat treatments optimize the performance and extends the life of gears in service by altering properties. Heat treatments improve physical properties such as surface hardness, which improves wear resistance to prevent tooth and bearing surfaces from wearing out. Heat treatments also improve a gear’s fatigue to prevent pitting and deformation from high contact stresses on gear teeth.
Heat treatment services:
- Case hardening
- Flame hardening
- Induction hardening
- Other options can be discussed upon request
