As an innovating leader in research and development, we are looking to bring technologies to you that add true value. Our laser hardening process hardens steel in localized areas, eliminating the deformation and potential warpage caused from heat-treating. Hardening in local areas can extend the life of sharp parting lines, high-abrasion areas, eliminate galling, and extend tool wear. This technology is effective for a variety of applications and molds, including small tools. Laser hardening services are currently available in Europe via Piazza Rosa and WCS.
