Case Study 3: Press Quench Process Sensitivities of Bearing

A press quenching process of an AISI 52100 bearing ring was resulting in a failure rate of over 60%. When die load pulsing was used, the failure rate dropped to near 0%. DANTE heat treatment simulation software was used to explore the causes which led to the high failure rate.

Case Study 4: Design Using DANTE

This case study explores using the DANTE heat treatment simulation software during the design of a bevel gear. First, the distortion from a free oil quench is predicted. A process change and a geometry change are then incorporated to reduce the warpage of the bevel to improve fatigue behavior.
