Precision Heat Treating for Steel Bars

When there are properties highly required in steel bars, we perform precision heat treating for the production of heat-treated bars.

Heat treating plays a vital role in achieving the necessary mechanical properties, especially to enhance machinability. It allows for more precise control over the desired mechanical properties, and the bars also undergo a stress relieving process to further optimize their performance. Components, including alloys, greatly benefit from heat treating, particularly in improving their hardenability.

Achieving Ideal Hardenability through Precision Heat Treating

To achieve the ideal hardenability in alloys, relying solely on alloying elements is often insufficient. Precision heat treating, employing a full cross-section method, enables an increased depth of hardness in each alloy. This approach ensures that larger sections can attain the desired mechanical properties while minimizing the need for severe quenching.

By carefully controlling the heat-treating process and incorporating the right alloying elements, it plays a crucial role in determining the depth of hardness in the alloy.
