Steering Rack Challenge

Verification of Case Hardning Depth of hardened components produced in high volumes is often a time sensitive operation. Especially the different sample geometries including cross section, longitudinal sections and angled sections contributes to a high complexity to the time optimization task.


A time optimized total proces was developed for cutting, grinding and etching a steering rack in 20 minutes ready for CHD measurement. Special focus was taken on balancing the parallel cutting proceses producing the 6 samles of interest in 8 min.
