IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF RECONDITIONED COMPONENTS BY CARBURIZING AND FRICTION HARDENING

Because the life of parts performing under friction is often insufficient, the surfaces of such parts must be hardened. A method for the surface friction hardening of already carburized steel is described and recommended for application in ship repair practice to improve the quality of reconditioned friction parts. The method causes surfaces to develop hardened layers with the structure of fine needle-type martensite and with high wear resistance. To prevent large microhardness gradients from developing in the hardened layer, the carburization depth must be less than the required hardening depth.
