Aluminum Processing

With our unsurpassed experience we have established processes for your most challenging aluminum parts. With the capacity to meet a 7-second quench delay we can handle even the thinnest of cross sections. Our dry ice storage and packing allows you to take your parts on ice to maintain “W” condition before sending them back to us for the final age. Capability to achieve T6 condition is an everyday event.

Salt Processing

This process is excellent for parts with differing cross section thicknesses. The secret to salt processing is the set up. Our Intelligent Heat Treating © application is at its best when it comes to specialized tooling and set up. Our small batch line is here to tackle your most challenging rings, gears and/or rough machine parts.

Atmosphere Processing

Our diverse atmosphere line was developed to handle parts of all sizes with precision. Through advanced modeling software our metallurgist can build a custom carburize or carbonitride recipe to meet your specific case needs. These advanced custom recipes are perfected through computer modeling before being loaded into the furnace.

Nitriding

Minimized distortion and increased wear resistance make gas nitriding a popular choice. Similar to carburizing, this is a case hardening application. Our digital controls allow for precision case depth and hardness. With our nickel strike and copper masking lines we can perform selective nitriding to critical surfaces. Low temperatures and long controlled cooling help eliminate distortion making this an ideal process for finished parts. For best results the material should be in a hardened and tempered condition prior to nitride processing.

Stress Relieving

Stress relieving is the process of removing residual stress within a part. Machining, cutting, forming and other manufacturing operations will cause stress to build up within the material. This stress can have a big impact to later heat treat applications. It is not uncommon for built up stress to cause unwanted distortion or cracking if not properly relieved. The benefits of stress relieving machined parts are enormous. Additionally this process does not change the material’s structure or hardness. Stress relieving is typically performed after rough machining but before finishing operations such as polish or grind.
