Heat treating is the process of heating and cooling metal in order to alter its properties and performance through a change in its microstructure and composition. This is done to improve toughness, refine grain structure, increase hardness, ductility, and improve machinability and wear resistance of the metal.
There are different types of heat treating equipment and various industries that require this process, including:
Materials commonly heat treated are steel, cast iron, alloys, aluminum, copper, brass, titanium and stainless steel. Of these metals, steel is the primary metal being heat treated, accounting for more than 80% of heat treating.
At Eastman Manufacturing, we have been designing and building heat treating equipment since 1992. We perform 95% of our work in-house which means we have greater control over the design and engineering processes being done to ensure the quality of the finished product. Through in-house manufacturing, our customers benefit with the following advantages we provide:
We provide a wide range of processing and heat treating equipment, from industrial convection ovens to process tanks and plating lines, to suit your specific requirements and production needs. So, contact us today!
