Heat treatment is a method used to alter the physical, and sometimes chemical, properties of a material
Heat treatment involves the use of heating or chilling, normally to extreme temperatures, to achieve a desired result such as hardening or softening of a material.
Brazing allow diverse configurations of parts, dissimilar metals and non-metals of non-uniform thickness to be joined.
Carburizing & Carbonitriding
The use of nitrogen for gas wiping of galvanised strip and wire has been widely adopted to give a better surface finish.
Neutral hardening is a heat treatment procedure for steels with the aim to produce a martensitic microstructure.
|Nitriding & Nitrocarburizing|
These processes involve the diffusion of nitrogen into the surface layers of a low carbon steel at elevated temperature.
|Quenching & Cooling
The use of gas quenching in a vacuum furnaces has advantages over both conventional processing and liquid quenching
Sintering produces parts that are harder (martenistic) and/or tougher (martenistic/bainitic) by controlled the cooling rate.
|Sub Zero Treatments
Use a moderately cold process for stabilisation and austenite removal or deep cold to improve wear resistance.
