Heat Treating Services


Some of our heat treating services include the following. Please email inquiry@10xengineering.com for a quote or call 800-948-2329 for these or other heat treating services.

Annealing - Annealing is used to induce ductility, soften material, relieve internal stresses, refine the structure by making it homogeneous, and improve cold working properties.

Austemper - A thermal process that produces significantly tougher parts than conventional heat treating. Used in many applications where distortion is critical. The resultant microstructure is very tough, exhibiting 15% higher toughness than a quench & tempered part of the same hardness.

Carbonitriding - Case hardening in which a suitable steel object is heated above Ac1 in a gaseous atmosphere of such composition as to cause simultaneous absorption of carbon and nitrogen by the surface and, by diffusion, to create a concentration gradient.

Carburizing - A process in which an austenitizable steel object is brought into contact with a carbonaceous environment of sufficient carbon potential to cause absorption of carbon at the surface and, by diffusion, to create a concentration gradient.

Cryogenic Treatment - Cryogenics, or deep freezing is done to make sure there is no retained Austenite during quenching, resulting in a complete Martensitic microstructure.

Marquenching/Martempering - A hardening procedure in a molten salt bath at a temperature right above the martensite start temperature that follows the austenitization of the ferrous material.

Nitriding - Introducing nitrogen into a solid steel object by holding it at a suitable temperature in contact with a nitrogenous environment.

Stress Relieving - Heating a steel object to a suitable temperature, holding it long enough to reduce residual stresses, and then cooling it slowly enough to minimize the development of new residual stresses.

Tempering - Reheating a quench hardened or normalized steel object to a temperature below Ac1, and then cooling it at any desired rate.

Vacuum Heat Treat - Heating metals to high temperatures normally causes rapid oxidation, which is undesirable. A vacuum furnace removes the oxygen and prevents this from happening.
