Quality Hardening Heat Treatment
General Metal provides a variety of high quality heat treating processes, including hardening heat treatment. This process involves heating steel, keeping it at the appropriate temperature, and then quickly quenching the metal in water or oil. Hardening heat treatment processes are typically utilized to give specific mechanical properties to a metal part, making it more suitable for the desired use.
Why use hardening heat treatment?
Treating metals with this process can help prevent them from wearing, which can be useful for tools used in heavy duty manufacturing. Hardening heat treating increases the brittleness of the steel, and creates a metal that won’t break as easily.
