Non-Ferrous Heat Treating
Non-ferrous heat treating is the process of heat-treating metals that do not contain iron, such as Aluminium, Titanium, and copper alloys, to improve their mechanical properties. We have a dedicated, custom built dual drop bottom oven, with computer control and water quenching, for the efficient processing of Aluminium. We can Solution and/or age harden Aluminium to increase its strength and machinability.
Induction hardening uses electromagnetic induction followed by water quenching, to rapidly heat and cool cylindrical metal components, effectively imparting a durable surface hardness, and with our twin-spindle CNC-controlled process, we are able to significantly decrease turnaround time and cost for larger batch size jobs, for enhanced efficiency and productivity.
A low temperature, low distortion, surface hardening treatment that improves wear resistance and mechanical properties of most steels. We use the Nitreg process, controlling the nitriding potential of the furnace atmosphere for improved process control. This produces very uniform, and repeatable, compound layers and case depths.
