The vacuum heat treatment improves the efficiency of high wear components
The life time of components has become an important factor for companies in competition about market positions. This life time is mainly influenced by the heat treatment of the components. With low pressure carbonizing HEKO sets new standards in heat treatment.
HEKO is the first company belonging to this branch hardening with helium-quench in vacuum heat treatment. This technology is a novelty in the chain industry worldwide. It has been used successfully for gear- and other precision-components for several years. The method is also approved in hardening of distortional or thin-walled components.
