Heat treatment

Generally, heat treatment describes processes to alter the physical, and sometimes chemical, properties of a material. Heat treatment involves the use of heating to alloy and property specific temperature and holding times.


  • Heat treatment trials combined with material property testing
  • Annealing trials with or without inert gas atmosphere, option for controlled water quenching
  • Customer specific trial heat treatments



Achievement of standardized mechanical properties of castings e.g. QT treatment of steel castings by heat treatment process steps solution annealing, quenching and tempering
