Scanners are the most versatile and flexible of the equipment available to the heat treating industry for induction hardening. This article provides a general overview of scanners, and describes various critical factors, including scan speeds, rotational speeds, and center total indicator runout of vertical scanners. It presents information on the frequency selection parameters for scanning applications. The article also discusses the critical parameters and production rates in specifying and developing a tooth-by-tooth hardening process.
