TASK:任務 Hardness testing on the running surfaces of camshafts
In order to attain adequate service lives, that means high capacity of resistance to wear, camshaft running faces are hardened, for example in the laser beam remelting process.
It must be ensured in this process that the martensitic micro-structure is developed uniformly over the camshaft contour by exact thermal processes and time sequences.
This process is checked by means of hardness testing. This calls for a method that keeps the necessary time expenditure within certain limits even with statistically required multiple measurements.
We recommend the hardness test according to the UCI method.
Using the test load of 0.3 kgf (3 N) and 1 kgf (10 N) respectively, an approximative nondestructive surface hardness determination is achieved (experience shows that the indentation depths of Vickers diamonds are at around 4 to 7 μm).
通過分別施加0.3 kgf (3 N) 和1 kgf (10 N)載荷來獲得近似的且表面沒有損壞的硬度值（經驗得出維氏金剛石的壓痕深度大約在4-7 μm之間）
The measuring process is considerably simplified by the special test support MIC 225 for hardness testing on camshafts.
This is achieved by mounting the camshaft in vee-blocks and an air bearing slide carriage with probe support guiding the measuring device parallel to the shaft axis. The torsion of the shaft during the measuring process is prevented by a magnetic locking.
This ensures an exact positioning of the probe on the camshaft base circle or camshaft tip.
