By means of heat treatment the properties of metallic materials can generally be greatly changed. The heating and subsequent cooling down of the components in the protective gas atmosphere means that the parts come out of the furnace in shiny condition.
Bright annealing means recrystalisation or normalisation of microstructures.
One typical field of application is for hydroformed stainless steel products.
We mainly carried out the following heat treatments:
• Recrystalisation annealing
• Stress relief heat treatment
• Soft annealing
By means of an appropriate hardness test and documentation, a valid annealing certificate can be produced after the heat treatment.
