with the purge system remaining in place.
Manufacturers are concerned about bottom-line economic issues such as increased cost of WPM, capital outlays for more heat-treating
equipment, higher costs resulting from increased energy consumption, and maintenance of markets and customers.
The compact containment area--not much larger than the part undergoing the process--means the procedure is very energy efficient, does not give off excess heat, and does not require the microwave reactor be kept running as is necessary with a heat-treating
The company has recently introduced a second vacuum furnace that is two times the capacity of the largest furnace in its heat-treating
Heat treaters have used polymer quenchants in induction heat-treating
applications for more than 3 years.
Sometimes the toolmaker may be able to enhance a specific property, such as toughness or wear-resistance, by experimenting or "fine tuning" the heat-treating
Some tooling buyers, such as Nypro, require that their moldmakers have the ability to provide certification of the heat-treating
process and of the metallurgical content of the steel.
It might be possible to achieve a better fungal resistance by heat-treating
wood at higher temperatures and maintaining the wood at this temperature for minimum 3 hours as suggested by Jamsa.
If you need in-house heat-treating
, we're the experts.
department was a private little hell hidden in the back of the shop, and the people who inhabited that murky inferno were considered alchemists.
