The Global Hardening Machine Market size is expected to grow from USD 1.2 billion in 2017 to USD 2.2 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 8.3%. The North American region will lead the global hardening machine market in terms of revenue, while Europe and the Asia Pacific are anticipated to be the fastest-growing markets for hardening machines during the forecast period (2021-2028).
A Hardening Machine can be defined as a machine that has the capability of hardening a form or shape. In manufacturing engineering, it is used to alter the physical properties of materials (such as making them harder) by plastic deformation in order to increase their resistance to wear and tear. It can be obtained through heat treatment also known as tempering for different purposes like mechanical performance enhancement or corrosion protection.

It can be obtained through heat treatment also known as tempering for different purposes like mechanical performance enhancement or corrosion protection.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Horizontal Hardening Machine and Vertical Hardening Machine.
Horizontal hardening machine is a kind of type in the global hardening machine market. Horizontal Hardening Machine refers to that the workpiece rotates during the heat treatment process, which can also be called a horizontal furnace or vertical autoclave.
The rotating equipment includes a wheel with four arms and has roller bearings at each end on both sides, so as to ensure smooth running motion without any impact when carrying out heavy load processing. It features a small size, simple structure, and high efficiency because it only needs a single gear drive system for power transmission from motor to shafts through belt pulleys. The T-type rollers are made of cast aluminum alloy die-casting molding, durable enough for long time use after proper maintenance.
Vertical hardening machines are heating components that are used for the purpose of producing uniform heat. This is achieved by using coils or metal plates and an electrical resistance material such as a nickel-chrome wire to create heat with induction. A vertical hardening machine can be heated from either top or bottom depending on its design, wherein, in this case, the coil would be controlled manually according to the desired temperature requirement. It may also have provisions for changing different thicknesses of bars with ease, so it’s not necessary to change the whole operating system every time a different size of the bar is required.
A typical use of a vertical hardening machine would include: The heat treatment process (annealing) makes steel harder and stronger through a heat treatment process and annealing. Tooling (manufacturing of tools). Hardening can be done to make them more durable for heavy-duty use. The surface is usually made harder by putting a hard metal, such as tungsten carbide, onto the tool’s cutting edge or tip where it contacts the material being cut. This makes cutting and shaping easier because there will be fewer shearing forces which would cause vibrations in the tool – therefore performing better than before. Other applications include sharpening knives on grinder machines that are commonly found in kitchens around the world or polishing metals to remove all dirt particles from their surface so they have a shiny appearance when viewed under light sources like sunlight or LED lamps.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Automotive, Aerospace, Tools & Instrument, Mining Machinery, Railway & Ships, and Others.
The auto industry is the largest consumer of hardening machines in terms of application. Owing to stringent requirements for compliance with safety standards, automakers use these machines to strengthen metal parts that can withstand high pressure without deforming or breaking apart. The requirement for this type of machine has increased due to an increase in demand for steel vehicles and the rising need for lightweight automobiles.
In addition, the rise in global warming concerns has led to an increase in production as well as consumption of electric cars that are lighter-weighted by design; thereby further increasing the demand on automotive industry's usage of hardening machines. These types of machines help manufacturers produce lightweight alloy wheels which have reinforced properties required to withstand rigorous driving conditions such as heat, rain, snow.
There are different types of hardening machines available for the aerospace industry. The most commonly used hardening machine in this sector is a vertical-type one, which can be either gas or oil-fired and operated with an electric motor drive. This type of hardening equipment provides high production rates at low costs to operators owing to relatively lower initial investment on machinery as well as operating expenses incurred by them during their operations. Besides, these devices minimize wastage that would otherwise happen due to thermal distortion of components when being processed without employing appropriate heat protection systems such as insulation jackets and cooling lubricants. Horizontal furnaces have also been employed in processing aluminum alloys with a good degree of success since they do not require large amounts of fuel for operation.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific. The highest revenue has been generated in North America over the period of forecast due to the high adoption of hardening machines owing to various benefits offered by these systems such as short processing time for components that can be up to five times faster than conventional methods like annealing.
Factors such as increasing demand for machining and metalworking from various end-user industries are expected to boost growth prospects for the market over the coming years. Moreover, factors such as technological advancements in manufacturing processes and rising adoption rates among small business enterprises will complement this projection.
