    Laser hardening

1 / 1

In laser hardening, a component is usually partially heated by means of high-power lasers in the multi-kilowatt range. Due to the local input of heat and the high thermal conductivity of the metal , you reach high quenching rates, which in turn can lead to high hardness.

Therefore, the warpage of the componentis relatively small due to the small amount of heat compared to induction heating . As a result, usually only a minimal post-processing of the component is required and experience has shown that a smaller depth of hardness than induction hardening is necessary.

Important for achieving optimum hardness is precise process temperature control. The hardening temperature is exactly maintained and recorded with the LASCON® system. Therefore you do not get over temperature at critical edges.
