Annealing Heat Treatment of Forgings
When metal has been forged it has undergone tremendous stresses and mechnical deformation. This can be very detrimental to tool life or distortion in subsequent machining operations.
A full annealing heat treatment of forgings can refine the microstructure, significantly reduce residual stresses, and improve machinability.
ThermTech provides annealing services on large batches of forgings in both open-fire, endothermic atmosphere and vacuum furnaces.
