The main benefit of induction heating for Quenching is that it takes just a few seconds. In a furnace, the same process can take hours or even days. How is that possible?
The answer is that induction is phenomenal at generating heat fast. This, in turn, means you can integrate Quenching in the production process. Quenching in a furnace, on the other hand, is more time-consuming (greater heat loss) and requires moving the components either to your own furnace or to that of a sub-contractor.
In-line integration of Quenching reduces your lead times considerably. You get full control over quality, delivery times and costs. There's no need to transport kilos of components back and forward, which saves energy and the environment. And last but not least, you cut down the amount of administration to a minimum.
