CONTOUR: DESIGNED TO TO DO WHAT OTHERS SAID COULDN’T BE DONE
Contour was established in 1986 with the goal of providing a cost-effective solution to difficult heat treatment applications.
This goal was attained through the development of an advanced computer-controlled induction heating technology known and patented as the Micropulse™ Process. Contour developed the Micropulse™ Process to rapidly harden gear teeth and other irregularly shaped parts requiring a high degree to case depth hardening and pattern accuracy.
In 1986, a system was built specifically for Contour. This first system is still used today for processing parts and developing applications for customers. Contour has been building systems for its customers since 1990.
Contour’s innovative processes and designs have yielded revolutionary improvements in our customers’ products.
Since our inception in 1986, Contour has enjoyed unprecedented growth.
Contour moved to a new, larger facility in the Summer of 2000. Our present location and latest proprietary induction hardening systems were purposefully planned to respond to our customers’ requests for either induction hardening systems or contracted induction hardening services.
During the fall of 2007 Contour created a satellite location in Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico.
Our Mexico facility also includes purpose-designed utilities, computerized gear inspection equipment, and a complete metallurgical laboratory to support our customers in Central and South America.
