Duration: 1 hour
Presented by:


This webinar presents the fundamentals of quench and temper heat treatment process, and will show how the design and operation of an induction heat treating line can improve mechanical properties. Discussion will focus on proper heating techniques, precision quenching with focus on minimizing distortion, controllable continuous cooling of products and key process parameters related to high velocity quenching.

Attendees will benefit by learning about the latest quenching technologies and process validation procedures as well as latest developments in induction tempering.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn the fundamentals of quench and temper heat treatment process
  • Understand the Iron-Carbon phase diagram and Continuous Cooling Transformation (CCT) diagram and its influence on phase transformations and microstructure
  • Learn about precision quenching dynamics and process influence on resulting microstructure
  • Discover how to avoid quench cracking and distortion, and methods to optimize induction tempering
  • Find out how design of the Q&T process affects the final product performance
