Metals > Heat treatment

homogenization

Metals; Heat treatment

Primarily used to equalize temperature in stock material prior to hot working, or to reduce excessive coring, which can occur in ingots and continuously cast alloys.

stress relieving

Metals; Heat treatment

A process used to remove stresses in welded, rapidly cooled components or cold work products.

solution heat treatment

Metals; Heat treatment

A process in which certain alloys, mainly some stainless steels and copper based alloys, are heated to a suitable temperature to allow their constituents to enter into solid ...

precipitation hardening

Metals; Heat treatment

A process in which certain nonferrous and ferrous alloys are heated, quenched and then aged at a relatively low temperature above room temperature, to allow precipitation ...

age hardening

Metals; Heat treatment

A process in which certain nonferrous and ferrous alloys are heated, quenched and then aged at a relatively low temperature above room temperature, to allow precipitation ...

quench hardening

Metals; Heat treatment

The objective of this treatment is to produce a fully Martensitic micro-structure in the steel. To achieve this the steel must be cooled rapidly from the austenitic condition. The ...

micro structure states

Metals; Heat treatment

Heat treatments are used to change the micro structural state of steels and alloys. Each of the states holds advantages in different applications and metals may be produced which ...
