Laser hardening of a shaft with parallel spirals.

Laser hardening

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 heat dissipation in the component, no separate quenching medium is required.

Advantages of laser hardening:

  • high surface hardness with tough core material
  • low distortion process
  • constant surface temperature
  • Quality control during the process with time parallel documentation
  • energy efficient and environmentally friendly
  • no quenching media required
  • also suitable for small series and individual pieces
