Modelling, Simulation and Optimization of Multifrequency Induction Hardening

Induction hardening of a gear

Induction hardening is a modern method for the heat treatment of workpieces made of steel. A well directed heating by electromagnetic waves and subsequent quenching of the workpiece increases the hardness of the surface layer. With the multi-frequency concept, medium and high frequency power are supplied simultaneous on a single induction coil, which can result in […]
