The Stages of Heat Treatment

Different manufacturing industries maximise all the features that can be found on metals. For one, almost all metals can be easily fabricated into any shape, size, or design. Some of them can also withstand intense heat, pressure, force, corrosion, and other damaging elements on their surroundings. Their durability and longevity make them suitable for a […]

Vacuum Heat Treating and Its Material Advantages

Heat is typically required to change the formation and appearance of metals. However, as these heated metals react with air, the said interaction would manifest numerous unwanted changes to the materials such as discolouration, scale, or contamination. The effects of the interaction with air are brought by the oxidation process, which should be avoided to […]

What are Some of the Causes of Quench Cracking in Steel?

It is significant for heat treatments to comprehend the systems related with quench cracking and to make every single judicious step important to maintain a strategic distance from in-administration item disappointments. To achieve this errand manufacturing engineers plan on materials choice, manufacturing strategies (including heat treatment) and wellbeing remittances. One of the initial phases in […]

Understanding Cold Working and Annealing

All in all terms, cold working is the disfigurement that happens under conditions where recuperation forms are not successful. Then again, hot working is twisting under states of temperature and strain rate to such an extent that recuperation forms happen at the same time with the deformation. There are basic changes that happen during cold […]

Heat Treatment Process Used for Castings

It is highly essential to use heat treatment process to change the physical and chemical properties of cast alloy depending on how it will be used. As it undergoes a heat treatment process, most of its mechanical properties be it ferrous or non-ferrous in nature will be observed through their microstructure. The heat treatment process […]

Troubleshooting Nitriding Process Problems – Part 2

The nitriding process improves the life expectancy of machine parts, so reducing the consumption of steel and energy and, as a result, the cost of the entire manufacturing process. For this reason, it may be considered both economically and ecologically beneficial. Economical and ecological advantages will at the same time characterise a process in which […]

Troubleshooting Nitriding Process Problems – Part 1

The nitriding process is perhaps one of the most misunderstood thermo-chemical surface treatment processes that are practiced today. So the process is not as old as, for example carburising. However, it is perhaps (as far as chemistry is concerned) one of the most simple of all of the thermo-chemical surface treatments are concerned. Below are […]
