Features

For EB hardening suitable materials:

  • steels with a carbon amount >= 0,3 % or
    carbon equivalent > = 0,5 %
  • heat-treatable steels
  • spring steels
  • tool steels
  • cold work tool steels
  • warm work tools steels
  • martensite stainless steels
  • case hardening steels in the carburized condition
  • cast iron (ductile iron)


For EB hardening suitable geometries:

  • are accessible for the electron beam without barriers
  • have a thickness of minimum 10 times of the desired hardening depth to achieve the necessary quenching rate
