The Pros and Cons of Induction Hardening

Induction hardening is a type of heat treating method in which you selectively and rapidly harden a metal surface. In the process, you place a copper coil that carries an alternating current near the part, but not directly touching it. Heat is generated close to the surface with eddy current and hysteresis losses. Then, a […]

What You Should Know About Stress Relief Annealing

Annealing is a type of heat treatment in which an alloy gets heated up and held at a particular temperature, then gets cooled down in a controlled manner. The process allows for internal stresses in the alloy to be relieved, softens the material and creates a chemical homogenization and transformation of the grain structure of […]
