CryoPlus, Inc., has cryogenically treated broaches and drills for Lincoln Electric Motors with exceptional results. The manufacturing engineer has stated that his two broaches have broached over 500 rotors, and they are still cutting clean. Untreated broaches needed to be re-sharpened at a cost of more than $200 after 200 rotors, and since they cost between $3,000 and $14,000, doubling the life between sharpenings results in significant savings.
Cryogenic treatment improves performance and increases the life up to 600 percent of metal cutting tools, blades, knives, hobs, broaches, and gears. The process of deep cryogenic freezing makes the internal structure more uniform, durable and stronger. Cryo processing increases abrasive wear resistance, raises the tensile strength and decreases brittleness with only one permanent treatment. It creates a denser molecular structure and closes the grains structure, resulting in a larger contact surface area that reduces friction, heat and wear. Unlike coatings, cryogenic treatment changes the entire structure, not just the surface. Subsequent refinishing or regrinding operations don’t affect the permanent improvements of the processing.
CryoPlus uses a state-of-the-art cryogenic processor. It is engineered for maximum performance and efficiency while offering an 8,000 pound load capacity. It is designed to provide for the complete conversion of retained austenite to martensite, as well as the reconfiguration of the molecules into a more harmonious pattern. CryoPlus works closely with end users to decrease tool costs and downtime, reduce maintenance, and increase throughput, giving them the ability to be competitive in the marketplace.
