Quenching and tempering in vacuum furnace

PROCESS DESCRIPTION

The Quenching and tempering process is a heat treatment that consist on the transformation of the structure of the steel, heating it to austenization temperatures and then cooling it quickly in a quenching medium such as gas or oil to increase its hardness and resistance in all its section.

QUENCHING AND TEMPERING IN VACUUM FURNACE. HEAT TREATMENT.

APLICATIONS

Tool steels, high-alloy steels and martensitic stainless steels in parts that once in service will be subjected to different tensile, compression, bending and/or torsion forces.

PROCESS DETAILS

  • Customized treatments for each part based on the mechanical requirements, used materials and morphology.
  • Possibility to perform Quenching in Gas (up to 15 bars of overpressure) or Quenching in Oil.
  • Control and monitoring of process temperatures during all the heat treatment.
  • Register of all parameters and process controls, traceable with Customer registers.
  • Great production capacity
