Induction Hardening

Induction hardening is a form of localized thermal processing in which a metal part is heated with a coil and then quenched. This allows only a specific area to have different mechanical properties than the rest of the part.

Induction Brazing

Induction brazing is a form of localized thermal processing in which two metal parts are joined using a filler alloy of a lower melting point. By using induction, it is possible to braze one section of a part without impacting the mechanical properties of the rest of the piece.

Torch Brazing

Torch brazing is by far the most common method of mechanized brazing in use. It is best used in small production volumes or in specialized operations to join two types of metals together.


Nitriding allows us to increase the hardness of a component’s surface by enriching it with nitrogen.


Carburizing is a method in which carbon rich gasses are used to diffuse high amounts of carbon into the surface of a steel. This is commonly used to protect against abrasion or wear of the material by increasing its surface hardness.
