process engineering support

You need process engineering support in the areas of induction heating, heat treatment or calibration?

Our experienced team (technicians / engineers / scientists) will be happy to support you in the planning, commissioning and process optimization of your applications. We help you to reduce costs and efficiently manufacture high quality products with the help of:

  • Simulations of the heating processes and/or the quenching behavior 
  • Optimally designed and constructed inductors (based on the simulations)
  • the possibility to carry out first tests in our company to verify the concept / process.      Hereby are possible:
    • clamping lengths up to 1,500 mm
    • workpiece diameters up to 600 mm  
    • frequencies from 1 to 400 kHz
  • the driving of test parts up to small series for prototypes
  • Evaluation of the test parts: surface hardness measurements, determination of the hardening depth, metallographic evaluation of the samples; we examine and evaluate damage cases without issuing an expert opinion; you only receive a report
  • if necessary, we additionally provide a geometrical evaluation by means of a 3D measurement
  • Competent commissioning in your company, as well as further production support if required.
  • Complete documentation (drawings, initial test documentation)
  • Training in the field of heat treatment / induction technology - with a focus on your process
  • Optimization of your serial production in the field of heat treatment

Fixture hardening / calibration:

  • Consulting activities in the field of fixture hardening (design of raw tools: hardening mandrel and other tools in contact with the workpiece, design and optimization of workpieces).
  • Driving of test parts up to small series for prototypes; a fixture calibration machine with up to 10 tons pressing force is available at our company
  • Support on site during the running-in of the calibration processes:
    • if necessary, we additionally provide geometrical evaluation by means of a 3D measurement
    • testing of general dimensional accuracy is possible (among others by means of calibers, measuring table of the company Mahr and other methods)
