Air and Atmosphere Heat Treatment

Annealing

We provide a range of annealing treatments in both air and atmosphere. These processes are used to restore the material to its ‘soft’ condition to allow for further processing to be carried out, be that either further machining or heat treatment.

Please contact us for details of the options available.

Normalising

We can provide normalising treatments to a wide range of materials. Normalising is used to homogenise the structure of the material to ensure the materials mechanical properties.

Please contact us for details of the options available.

Stress Relieving

Rough machining on a wide range of parts will create stress within the item that must be removed before any subsequent heat treatment operation to prevent unwanted distortion and occasionally cracking.

Stress relieving can also be used to remove tension from welded structures.

Please contact us for details of the options available.

Precipitation Hardening

Stainless steels such as 17.4ph can be precipitation hardened to a range of conditions in air and this can be a very cost effect method of treatment if vacuum treatment is not essential.

Please contact us for details of the options available.

For further information on these treatments please download the data sheet from our ‘downloads’ page or feel free to contact us.
