Vacuum Heat Treatment

Summitglow Ltd. has over fifteen years’ experience in providing Vacuum heat treatment to a wide range of different industries.

The range of heat treatments provided by this method include: Hardening & Tempering, Annealing, Ageing, Solution treating and Precipitation hardening

This method provides for a completely clean component after heat treatment with minimum levels of distortion and movement.

The control of the process is by programmable technologies, controlling both the furnace temperature with several thermocouples and the actual temperature of the work being treated.
