Gear Heat Treatment Services

At Bluewater, we provide heat treatment services of metal gears throughout our different processing plants across the country. Gas nitriding, carbonitriding, carburizing, and hardening are the most common procedures we perform. When treating gear, we typically use batch-heat-treating furnaces racked on custom fixturing to ensure uniform heat treating and to prevent damage to their teeth.

Bluewater carries out normalizing treatments to rough machined gears or gear blanks in order to eliminate any residual stresses before final machining and heat treatment. The purpose of this is to further lessen dimensional change and distortion.

Parameters for processing are chosen carefully to accommodate hardness and microstructural requirements. Gears are inspected in various locations – for instance, the tooth, root, and gear tooth mid-pitch. Customers will sometimes require the different specs be matched locations. Sometimes blasting is implemented after heat treatment of gears in order to clean the years for shipment to the customer.
