Quality Carburizing & Case Hardening Heat Treating
Carburizing heat treatment is a heat treating process offered by General Metal for iron or steel components. This method involves adding carbon atoms to the outer surface of the steel. Carburizing — also called case hardening — changes the chemistry of the workpieces at their surface, while leaving the interior chemistry unchanged.
Why use carburizing heat treatment?
Though carburizing has been a heat treating process for a long time, companies like General Metal Heat Treating have evolved the methods using advanced heat treating techniques and equipment. These improvements mean our carburizing process yields improved hardness and durability.
The surfaces produced by carburizing are tougher, and resistant to damage and wear. However, this process allows all treated metals to maintain their strength at the core. Bearings, gears and other low carbon steel components are usually treated with carburizing. Have a complex shape that needs heat treating? No problem!
