When a precision machined component is heat treated, a controlled heating and cooling procedure is used to change the metal's physical characteristics to meet a particular requirement. Heat treatment is frequently used to improve material strength, hardness, and wear resistance. It can also be used to reduce internal stress, enhance machinability, enhance electrical or magnetic characteristics, or boost ductility and softness, depending on the material and procedure utilised.

Three fundamental processes make up the heat-treating process :

  • Heating: The metal is heated until it reaches a certain temperature at which its structural characteristics change.
  • Soaking: The metal is heated to the desired temperature and kept there until it has been evenly heated across the entire section.
  • Cooling: The metal is cooled at a predetermined rate until it reaches room temperature.

Although some grades of aluminium can also be heated treated, heating treating is most frequently utilised on steels and steel alloys. To satisfy project needs, Akshar Engitech has experience of Heat-treating a wide range of alloy through various processes such as.
