Sensitivity Study of Press Quench Process and Concept of Tooling Design for Reduced Distortion by Modeling


The press quench process includes parameters such as heating rate, austenitization temperature, applied load type, load amount, load locations from the tooling, friction between the tooling and the gear, and the quench rate. All these factors can lead to inconsistent distortion, especially for the radial size of thin-wall gears. In this paper, the effects of several critical factors on the dimensional inconsistency and tooling design are analyzed by heat treatment modeling software.
