Learn how automated and reproducible processes bring reliable and fast hardness test results for a surface hardened CV joint.


A reliable, fast and reproducible process of smart clamping, semi-automated grinding and polishing as well as fully automated hardness testing on especially the  spline and ball tracks was developed consisting of:

  • Precision cutting with Axitom-5 and smart clamping setup to avoid pinching of cut-off wheel
  • A semi-automated and mechanical 4-step grinding and polishing process with AbraPol-30 to prepare surface for hardness testing
  • A fully automated CHD-measurement of 15 indentations with Duramin-40AC1
