Metal Thermal treatments
Heat treatments allow to improve the QUALITY of metals by changing the characteristics of the internal structure. We perform heat treatments on aluminum, steel, copper, brass and bronze.
What is a heat treatment
Heat treatment is a process that allows to alter the microstructure of a metal in order to enhance its future use in any sector.
The metal component will generally be more resistant to high temperatures, hard and ductile, thus avoiding its deterioration over time.
The metals are subjected to several thermal cycles, each of which is composed of a heating, a maintenance and a cooling of the temperature in a controlled way.
Type of Thermal Treatments
The heat treatments can be divided into treatments which provide for heating to temperatures above the critical points of the metal
and treatments with temperatures below the critical range:
Softening annealing or workability improvement
