Induction hardening in the automotive industry
Few industries have benefited as much from induction hardening
technology as the automotive sector
. And few—if any—induction companies come close to matching our expertise in this key area.
Working closely with many of the world’s top automakers and auto suppliers, we have to date installed more than 2,000 induction hardening solutions in the following areas:
Induction hardening of engine parts such as valves, crankshafts, camshafts, connection rods and starter rings
Induction hardening of transmission parts, for example CV joints, tulips and axle shafts
Induction hardening of suspension parts such as shock absorber rods, springs and suspension arms
Induction hardening of parts for automatic and manual gear gearboxes, for example rings, selector shafts and sun gears
Induction hardening of clutch springs and brake pads
EFD Induction has spearheaded the development of advanced frequency converters. We also offer frequency converters that run at high and low frequencies simultaneously, known as the Multi Frequency Concept (MFC)—ideal for contour hardening of cogwheels and other complex geometries.
