Significant Increase In Machine Part Durability and Longevity Due to The New Patented Lincarb™, Linterprocess™ and Linheat™ Technologies 2002-01-1442

The interest to the new surface heat treatment technologies, which were recently invented in the United States, is constantly increasing in the world industry.
Research and developments in the field of Induction Carburizing Technology (LINCARB™), which is the first production technology in large family of new, progressive thermochemical processing (LINTERPROCESS™) are successfully going on. Eleven varieties of this treatment can be used for increasing of machine part resistance against friction and wear, corrosion, fretting, erosion and cavitation by creation of special surface layers.
The microstructure and properties of these diffusion coatings can be selected depending on service condition of the part. The protective diffusion coating can be created quickly and economically during seconds or minutes compare to hours and tens of hours which are necessary for traditional methods of treatment.
These technologies can be successfully used in all kind of production not only for steels, but for titanium alloys as well.
The article explains the technology, equipment, treatment parameter and surface metallurgy of the LINCARB™ and LINTERPROCESS™ technologies as well as the features, advantages and benefits of this new type of heat treatment.
