Laser hardening of a shaft with parallel spirals.
Laser hardening is a surface hardening process that generates maximum hardness values at the component surface with a very low energy consumption.
The heat input is by laser beam for a short time and locally limited. The quenching takes place via the dimensions of the component, no separate quenching medium is needed.
Advantages of laser hardening:
- high surface hardness with tough core material li>
- low-distortion process li>
- constant surface temperature li>
- Quality control during the process with time-parallel documentation li>
- energy efficient and environmentally friendly li>
- no quenching media required li>
- also suitable for small series and individual pieces li>
