Low-Pressure Vacuum Carburizing.
by Frederick Otto (Midwest Thermal-Vac) and Daniel H. Herring (The Herring Group Inc.)

Low-pressure vacuum carburizing, is a technology developed in the mid 1990's, has helped revolutionize the heat treating industry, primarily because of its capability for precise process control. Tight control enables absolute repeatability, optimized part microstructure, enhanced mechanical properties, and reduced manufacturing costs.

Gear Heat Treatment. Part 1
by Frederick Otto (Midwest Thermal-Vac) and Daniel H. Herring (The Herring Group Inc.)

Gears play an essential role in performance of many products that we rely on in our everyday life. When we think about gears, We generaly separate them in two categories: motion-carrying and power transmition. The focus here is on heat treating gears intended for heavy duty service.

Gear Heat Treatment. Part 2
by Frederick Otto (Midwest Thermal-Vac) and Daniel H. Herring (The Herring Group Inc.)

Today, atmosphere carburizing of gears is de facto standard by which all other hardening techniques, including induction, are measured. The process will continue to be a dominant technology well into future due in part to its proven results, wide acceptance and energy choice.
