Annealing equipment is typically used to apply a heat treatment process that alters the physical or chemical properties of a material. The process involves thermodynamics, which is the diffusion of atoms in a metal at high temperatures in order to break the chemical bond. The aim of this process is to achieve the ductility of the material while reducing the hardness. Annealing equipment prepares the metal for easy workability in order for it to be cut, formed or shaped.
When working with non-ferrous metals like silver and brass, cooling is normally achieved by extinguishing the hot material in water. Ferrous metal requires a gradual process of cooling in a still atmosphere. To attain the desired degree of workability, the annealing process works in three stages.
