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.
Why is metal heat treated?
Metals are professionally heat-treated for various reasons, but the short of it is this: heat-treated metals perform better, physically and mechanically, than raw material. Without thermal processing companies, certain industry standards simply could not be met - many mechanical parts could not be realized from concept to field use.
Different Types of Brazing
There are many questions regarding brazing. For those who are unaware, brazing involves joining two or more pieces of metal (or other selective materials) together. However, brazing is much different from soldering and welding. Brazing involves joining metals by heating and melting a filler. The “filler metal” should be compatible with the parent materials, in a metallurgic sense.
