e-Mobility & Low Pressure Carburizing with ECM

e-Mobility & Low Pressure Carburizing with ECM

LPC with HPGQ is optimal for drivetrain heat treatment systems with the industry transition from ICE to EV. Electric vehicle drivetrains demand very low distortion, and automotive manufacturers require very consistent, high-quality results which are achieved when performing low pressure carburizing/high pressure gas quenching in ECM vacuum furnaces.

Low Pressure Carburizing of Gears

Low Pressure Carburizing of Gears

Solar Atmospheres provides low pressure carburizing (LPC) that significantly increases the surface hardness/strength of steel parts for improved friction and wear. Performing LPC in a vacuum furnace eliminates oxygen and prevents IGO (intergranular oxidation) that is inherent in atmospheric carburizing, resulting in clean parts with less distortion reducing post process finishing operations, and costs.
