Agricultural Equipment

Components used in the agricultural and construction industries must endure high wear and heavy loads. Product performance is constantly being pushed to the next level, where components are expected to last longer and be cost effective. Austempering is a proven way to increase the strength and performance of many different components. The agricultural industry has taken a keen interest in Austempered components for their excellent wear characteristics. Companies such as John Deere, Caterpillar, CNH Global and many other use Austempered parts to increase the performance of their equipment, thus increasing productivity for their customers. Applied Process can demonstrate for you the material properties and characteristics obtained in Austempered components, along with examples of successful applications. Many customers have saved money by switching from forgings to low-cost castings, which are subsequently Austempered to produce the best possible properties. We can help you select the material/process combination that is right for your components and applications. We will provide your design engineers with property data they can use in designing Austempered parts, and discuss your applications.
