Gas Nitriding is most effective when applied to the range of steels containing nitride-forming elements such as chromium, molybdenum, vanadium and aluminium.
Annealing is a heat treatment process that alters the physical and chemical properties of a material to increase its ductility and reduce its hardness, making it more workable.
Case hardening is a process that is used to harden the outer layer of case hardening steel while maintaining a soft inner metal core.
Heat Treatment and Metal Components Surface Finishing
Applied to some, but not all, engineering steels, normalizing can soften, harden or stress relieve a material, depending on its initial state.
Aluminum Material Ageing
Aluminum alloys used in aerospace technology by artificial ageing heat treatments lead to an improvement of its mechanical properties.
