Effects of Flame Hardening on Steel and Iron

As stated in our earlier articles, flame hardening technology selectively heats and hardens parts of a metal workpiece. Imagine the teeth of a spur gear being subjected to the flame, or perhaps it’s the leading edge of a chisel that experiences the focused flame. Looked at from the perspective of the subject steel or iron […]

Annealing Equipment: Significance in Metal Fabrication

Metal fabricators employ numerous tooling stations, which is as it should be because complex geometrical profiles are processed within these expert workshops. Some tools bend, others drill, then, waiting in the wings, there are bandsaw cutters and shop presses waiting. In essence, the workpieces are exposed to enormous stresses. These cold work stresses steal away […]
