Induction tempering in the automotive industry
For years, induction tempering was taboo among potential users. But technical development spearheaded by EFD Induction—and real-life validation in the automotive industry—have resulted in induction tempering now being a must for a wide range of components.
A vast amount of parts can be treated with induction tempering such as camshafts, crankshafts, drive shafts, torsion bars, couplings, rocker arms, rock drills, chains, suspension arms, clutches, brake discs, steering wheels, CV joints, tulips, shock absorbers, inner and outer races, control rods, valves and output shafts.
Fast, accurate and flexible, induction tempering replaces the huge wasteful furnaces used for decades in heat treatment shops. Fatigue tests have confirmed the quality results delivered by our induction solutions.
