Vacuum Heat Treatment Services
Heat treatment is the process of heating metal and then cooling it in a controlled way so as to select desired mechanical properties. Heat treatment prepares a substrate for a better PVD adherence by tempering and hardening the tool or component. We work with our clients to make sure we choose a heat treatment process that is ideal for their components and processes.
At voestalpine Thermo-Tech, we offer a wide range of vacuum heat treatment services for tempering & hardening of tool steels. Our thermal processing center has an extensive line of vacuum heat treatment equipment to suit all of our customers’ requirements, accommodating tools and components of a wide range of size and/or complexity. We have built our success and reputation on value engineering, practical innovations, attention to detail, unparalleled product quality, and on long-term client relationships.
Our goal is to provide our customers with a complete experience, from the very first stages of material selection, to the final stages of post-heat treatment recommendations. Our engineers and metallurgists are available to our clients at all times to ensure that the heat treatment process is ideal for your company’s products.
