Trials on ring / on gears

Pre-trials on rings show the potential of the dynamic quenching and indicate possible approaches for quenching on real gears. Application of injection-systems for diesel engines and gear-shafts could be possible in heat treatment as well.

The team did also geometrical measurements and metallurgical analysis comparison between different treatment parameters (helium, nitrogen and air quenching) and currently hardened gears.
