Vacuum Solution Annealing
Industrial Heat Treatment Increases Yield Strength in Tool & Die Applications
If you are making a tool or die out of a precipitation hardening steel such as 15-5, 17-4, or 17-7 stainless steel or a super-alloy steel, such as Inconel or Hastelloy, then you might need vacuum solution annealing to ensure the parts are in the correct condition for subsequent age hardening, or that parts are in the proper phase for optimum corrosion resistance.
We also have experience in processing exotic titanium and molybedenum dies in our vacuum furnaces. Our largest furnace is 36" wide x 32" high x 72" long with a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds.
