BIG ENOUGH TO GIVE YOU CONFIDENCE AND SMALL ENOUGH TO GIVE YOU THE SERVICE”

Text Box: PROCESSES
Text Box: Carburising is undertaken under a protective endothermic gas atmosphere in integral quench furnaces. Atmosphere gases react with the steel to form atomic carbon.  Controlled levels of carbon are diffused into the steel surface until the desired case depth is achieved.

Carburizing produces a hard case with good wear and fatigue resistance and a softer, tough, core.

Common alloy case hardening steels processed:
EN36, 4317 (Hycase), 8620 and Hollow Bar (20MnV6).

Case depths frequently undertaken:  0.25-1.5 mm.
