  • Induction Heat Treatment of Steel Bars
    Treating steel bars in order to enhance torsion characteristics, reduce alloy components, etc. has long been a well-known process. One traditional treatment process involves using continuous furnaces. However, the use of. continuous furnaces makes it extremely difficult to control and monitor
  • Carbon Steel
    , stamped, or otherwise shaped. Cast steels are poured to near-final shape in sand molds. The castings are then heat treated to achieve specified properties and machined to required dimensions. Wrought steel undergoes two operations. First, it is either poured into ingots or strand cast
  • Hardening steel pipe segments (sleeves)
    Induction is used in a process to harden a steel pipe segment to improve wear-resistance. Disappointed with low quality levels in a previously outsourced process, the customer uses induction to bring the heat treatment and the control of the end-product quality in-house.
  • Corrosion Resistant Alloys, Metals & Steel
    As the chromium content rises in any stainless steel, so does its resistance to corrosion. Of course, getting the proper mix of ingredients is only one small part of forging truly corrosion-resistant steel. Much of the rest has to do with other treatments, including heat treatment and surface
  • Coating helps P/M tooling beat the heat
    The highly magnified digital images of a polished tool surface before and after MLP treatment show CPM 3V tool steel polished to a finish of 8 RMS. The light colored regions in the photo at right are the chrome bonded to the surface. The blue-green flecks are the MLP polymer imbedded in the pores
  • Tool Steel
    The same properties that qualify tool steels for tools and dies are also used for other parts that require resistance to wear, stability during heat treatment, strength at high temperatures, or toughness. Tool steels are increasingly being used for mechanical parts to reduce size or weight

    of heat treatment procedures.
  • Nanostructured Steels Are On The Horizon
    Revolutionary steels devised with nanotechnology may be poised to usher in a new Iron Age.
