Hardening, Carburizing, Normalizing, Annealing, Stress Relieve, Blackening, Straightening, Carbo-Nitriding, Austempering, Martempering, Marquench, Induction Hardening, Tempering, Sandblasting, Tufftride, Liquid Nitride, Solution / Age Hardening Treatments etc.
Tufftride processes is used to improve the wear resistance, the fatigue strength and in particular when combined with oxidative cooling – the corrosion resistance of components made from steel.
Metallurgical solutions both internally and externally are both carried out in our fully comprehensive materials testing laboratory. National and International traceability methods and standards are used.
Our salt bath line compromises of 8 gas and electric heated baths capable of carburizing and neutral hardening up to 1.5 meters long with a max of 500 diameter in circumference. Martempering, Austempering, Marquencing and Nitrocarburizing can be treated and combined with these processes.
Production components are sent through a semi = automatic shaker hearth furnace under controlled atmosphere. The furnace capability is +/- 1 ton an hour depending on the product mix.
