From July 5 to 8, 2021, Yekaterinburg hosted the largest Russian industrial trade show «Innoprom». Inject Enterprise presented its laser for surface hardening processes – PLD-6 injection laser.
The hardening process with laser robotic complex was simulated at the FANUC booth. Visitors could learn more about the advantages of laser hardening technology in comparison with other existing strengthening technologies.
According to the results of research conducted by materials scientists of the Saratov State Technical University, the laser hardening treatment with a PLD-6 injection laser allows to increase the hardness of the upper layer of a steel sample to 57– 60 HRC. The macro- and microhardness testing in the zone of thermal exposure showed that the hardness was tripled compared to the base metal. Consequently, it allows predicting an increase in wear resistance, corrosion resistance and loads
