Heating metals to high temperatures normally causes rapid oxidation, which is undesirable. A Vacuum Furnace removes the oxygen and prevents this from happening.
Our Vacuum Furnace is capable of reaching temperatures of 1200c.
A process in which an austenitizable steel object is brought into contact with a carbonaceous environment of sufficient carbon potential to cause absorption of carbon at the surface and, by diffusion, to create a concentration gradient.
Tempering is a low temperature heat treatment process normally performed after a hardening process in order to reach a desired hardness or touchness ratio.
Annealing is used to induce ductility, soften material, relieve internal stresses, and refine the structure by making it homogeneous.
A high temperature heat treatment process performed with the aim to which is to make a material as soft as possible.
Heating a steel object to a suitable temperature, holding it long enough to reduce residual stresses, and then cooling it slowly enough to minimize the development of new residual stresses.
