Philip Clarke will describe the heat treatment of gear steels. The basic metallurgical concepts and key principles; the enhancement of surface properties by carburising and induction hardening will be explained. The properties imparted by; and the consequences and problems of the chosen process with reference to material selection; distortion and growth will be covered with the aid of case histories. The Seminar covers an introduction to steel heat treatment – metallurgical principles; hardening & tempering; carburising; an introduction to nitriding; nitro-carburising & other surface treatments; Laser & Electron Beam Hardening; induction & flame hardening; problem solving – low/high hardness; case-depth and controlling distortion.
