The micropulse Process

Micropulse uses controlled pulses of energy, measured and delivered in milliseconds, to produce hardened parts with greater fatigue strength and wear resistance

Thermal hardening

Contour custom-designs and manufactures Lift and Rotate Machines, Single Shot Shaft Machines, and Crankshaft Machines.
