The History of Heat Treatment
If we’re going all the way back to the beginning of heat treatment in metallurgy, then we have to travel to 6,000 B.C.E., when humans began treating metals through the process of smelting.
The Importance of Material Verification
Material verification can ensure that the material is structurally sound when adequately treated. If metal isn’t physically sound, it can lead to a failure during manufacturing or use.
The Benefits of Gas Nitriding
Parts used in the medical, aerospace, defense, and power generation industries must be resilient and uniform to guarantee quality. The process is crucial for wear or contact surface equipment because gas nitriding enhances the surface hardness to a higher degree than some materials can reach through traditional thermal processing.
Taking Titanium Alloys to the Next Level for Medical Manufacturers
Titanium alloys have become increasingly popular in the development of products in the medical industry because of their excellent corrosion resistance and weight to strength ratio.
Vacuum Heat Treatment Remains an Innovative Solution for Medical Manufacturing Leaders
Vacuum heat treatment and thermal processing yield high-quality, durable, and clean end results. A climate-controlled facility, state-of-the-art furnaces, and precise temperature control allow Vacu Braze to provide leading medical manufacturers with innovative and quick turnaround solutions to common challenges.
The Benefits of Nitriding for the Aerospace Industry
Gas nitriding is a surface heat treatment that uses dissociated ammonia to diffuse nitrogen into the surface of various types of steel. This diffusion provides a case hardness on the part to improve its wear resistance and fatigue strength.
How Glass Beading Improves Parts for Medical and Aerospace Manufacturing
Glass beading improves the end product in the heat treatment cycle, especially for medical and aerospace manufacturers. The process cleans the surface of parts, ensuring that workpieces leave heat treatment free of grease, oil, and scales.
The Benefits of Age Hardening
Over the years, materials science has developed some innovative processes for making a variety of materials useful for any industry. With the advancement of metal-working technology following the industrial revolution, everyone from engineers to hobbyist blacksmiths have looked for creative ways to treat their metals and increase their utility.
