Heat treatment implies heating, and then cooling the material in accordance with particular curves, and under precisely defined atmospheres, to yield the desired properties.
For quality inssurance reasons, the heat treatment is closely monitored by our QC department, by means of certain specific devices (cf. chapter “quality”); for each furnace batch, a graph is recorded, and a specimen blank is used for control purposes.
The following materials are heat-treated in that way:
This furnace is used for the quenching and carburizing operations.
