Heat Treat Annealing
One of the many ways we can heat treat material is through annealing. Annealing is a heat treatment intended to alter the properties of a material, changing strength and hardness. During annealing the material involved is heated and maintained at a suitable temperature for a specific amount of time, then allowed to cool very fast or very slowly depending on the material. Annealing is used to induce softness, relieve internal stresses, and refine the structure of the metal involved. As with other heat treatments, our Annealing services are NADCAP accredited.
Heat treating is used to alter the physical properties of a material. Heat treating involves the use of heating or chilling to achieve a desired result, which is normally strengthening or softening of a material.
Heat Treating Services
We offer many heat treating services. We provide many common heat treating services, including Annealing, Solution Annealing, Beta Annealing, Homogenization, Aging, Hardening, Tempering, Diffusion Bonding, and Sintering. Our heat treating services are performed in vacuum, atmospheric, and air furnaces. These services can be performed to aerospace, medical, military, nuclear, automotive or commercial specifications. We offer heat treating services for small parts and assemblies that fit in the palm of a hand all the way to very large structures. Please call us with your size requirements. All of our heat treating services are NADCAP accredited.
Heat Treating: Hydrogen
Our atmospheric heat treating services typically use a hydrogen atmosphere, but can also use other atmospheres. Atmospheric heat treating typically uses inert atmospheres to prevent oxidation of the parts subject to heat treating. All of our various atmospheres can be used in all of our furnaces.
Sintering is often used to produce small or complex metal objects that it would be impractical to cast.
Tool Steel Hardening
We offer heat treatment services for tool steel hardening. The proper heat treatment of tool steel is one of the most important parts of tool manufacture and is very important to the tool industry. The hardening and quenching of tool steel can be performed in our facilities using our industrial furnaces.
