Heat treatment of steel

Heat treatment of metal is an effective method of its consolidation. Modern industry is simply inconceivable without qualitative wear-resistant parts. And just the heat treatment makes it possible to get such details. Processing of various metals and alloys with high temperature gives the metal the necessary mechanical properties. After that, metal parts are much more amenable to tooling, they are capable of withstanding heavy loads, and their service life is also prolonged.

Therefore, heat treatment is one of the priority areas of activity of our company.

Non-ferrous metals, alloys and steel of various categories can be heat treated. Depending on the selected heating mode, type of heat treatment and cooling temperature, you can get an absolutely unique structure and properties of the material. Heating and subsequent cooling at a certain rate and under certain conditions is set separately, proceeding from the properties and structure of the parent metal.

Our company offers its services in the field of heat treatment. Modern equipment for providing heat treatment services is suitable for components of different sizes and is characterized by reliability and high quality of assembly.

Our employees have extensive experience and deep knowledge, they will help you to choose the right heat treatment, namely:

After heat treatment, the steel edges become stronger on the surface. After quenching on the surface the metal is enriched with a thin layer of solid carbonaceous alloy.

Nitriding and enrichment of special alloy steel with nitrogen makes it possible to get a hard surface and soft core without additional processing.

Hardening will improve the mechanical properties of the components for use in a variety of preparation conditions. Hardening is a low process temperature (from 150 ° C to 650 ° C), used to eliminate the resulting stresses and brittleness, and to achieve certain mechanical properties.

To increase the strength of the alloy, we use annealing, which involves heating the alloy to a certain temperature, which is carried out until all the necessary for removal elements are in the solute. Consequently, these elements remain in the solute, and the alloy is subjected to rapid cooling. Subsequent removal of annealing provides uniform excretion of elements at natural (room) or artificial (high) temperatures. Incomplete annealing is a high-temperature procedure that is carried out to simplify the processing of the material as gently as possible.

In the heat treatment of stainless steels, we carry out special procedures for surface hardening of austenitic stainless steels (nickel-based alloys and cobalt-chromium alloys), which improve mechanical properties and wearout resistance. Corrosion resistance remains unchanged.

In order to eliminate the unevenness of the microstructure and coarse-grained state, we can make a normal annealing of steel.

If it is necessary to make the material softer and stronger, will suit a mild thermal treatment of the metal for the evenallocation of spherical carbides in steel - glow.

During the ion implantation process, a high-energy ion surface material is fired by electrons, which improves the coefficient of friction, adhesion wear resistance and surface hardness of polymers and metals.

To reduce the risk of undesirable changes in the microstructure, we apply the stress relief of metal components.
