HEICO hardening technology: Induction / inductive hardening

HEICO now offers an inductive hardening service

HEICO have been able to significantly expand their capabilities regarding heat treatment of cold forged parts by setting up our own induction hardening facilities.

‘Inductive hardening’ or ‘surface hardening’ is a very precise process in which only individual areas of the component are hardened without the property of the part as a whole being changed. The process can be controlled very precisely, with subsequent metallographic and structural tests in our own in-house test laboratory offering HEICO customers full process control.

In addition to the complete production and hardening of cold forged parts, HEICO now offers inductive hardening of externally manufactured parts as a service. As a requirement, the hardened parts have to be made of a suitable material. Suitable materials are quenched and tempered steels with a carbon content of more than 0.3%.

As a DIN EN ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 certified company, HEICO stands for the highest quality standards. Therefore, our induction hardening systems and the tempering furnace comply with the CQI-9 standard, which is valid for all worldwide automotive suppliers and serves as a supplement to the IATF 16949 certification.
