An innovative enterprise from Vladimir city is a leading Russian developer and manufacturer of industrial laser systems for thermal hardening, surfacing and welding.
For test hardening were presented the gears made of structural alloy steel with a high chromium content (40X)
Deputy of general director for production at StankoMashStroy Sergey Mityasov, who personally visited the TermoLaser enterprise in Vladimir city notified - “The result exceeded of all our expectations. The surface hardness of the gears was about 55-57 HRC units after processing".
An agreement about the heat treatment of a trial batch of gears by laser heat hardening was reached at the meeting with CEO of the company.
As a result of rapid heating of the treatment zone above the phase transition temperature and subsequent cooling due to heat removal, a specific highly dispersed structure is formed in the surface layer, having a microhardness 2-4 times higher than the hardness of the base.
