Chapter 11: Induction Heat Treating Process Analysis
This chapters discusses the considerations involved in the qualification and analysis of induction hardening treatments. The discussion covers material selection and prior heat treatment, hardness and case depth, frequency selection, power density and heating time, part and process tolerances, geometrical effects, quenchant selection, coil design, and work-handling equipment. The chapter also presents several examples, walking readers though each step, and discusses the development of setup instructions and operating procedures.
