Heat Treating

Heat treating alters the physical (and, sometimes, chemical) properties of metal materials to improve hardness, toughness, ductility, and/or other mechanical properties. Most heat treatment processes utilize both extreme heat and extreme cold to alter the crystalline microstructure of the material and achieve the desired result. Common heat treating techniques include:

  • Annealing
  • Case hardening
  • Normalizing
  • Precipitation
  • Quenching
  • Strengthening
  • Tempering
