Tempering Process for CV joints
Heat Treatment on CV Joints
The Constant Velocity Joint is one of the many successful examples of high-speed convection tempering. Furnace design is a key factor in the performance of high-speed tempering processes. Our precision heat transfer has been demonstrated many times with numerous customers in America and Europe. The CV Joint story began in 1999 with the acceptance of high-speed convection tempering at Ford Motor Company. With an aggressive 10-minute cycle time, manual part handling was eliminated, and work-in-process reduced by 90%.
Many American and European CVJ suppliers replaced their in-line induction tempering process with Pyromaitre’s high-speed convection technology. As the induction tempering process used to be bottleneck, its elimination allowed for almost a doubling of line capacity. Pyromaître ovens with 10 to 35-minute tempering and recirculating air coolers were integrated to deliver a considerable return on a modest capital investment.
