Induction Hardening

lnduction Hardening is a process used to harden only the thread forming zone of a tri-lobular  fastener that forms a thread in a mating hole as it is assembled.

Specialist machinery for induction hardening fastener threads either through hardening, or zone hardening leaving the cores of the heat treated fastener unaffected. This gives thread forming screws the ability to retain core toughness, but with hard threads to meet the most punishing applications of thread forming screws.

Specialised zone heat treatment provides wear resistant areas and thread forming features.

Our range of metal finishes and pre-applied lubricants can be applied to hardened screws to provide in-place corrosion resistance and controlled installation and prevailing torques.

We understand that a tailored approach to induction hardening is essential to your business. You can email us via the Contact page to discuss your individual requirements with an expert.
