Aluminium Heat Treatment
Sometimes, to get the best results with your aluminium casting, it is necessary to alter the physical properties of the metal alloys being used. Using heating and cooling (or quenching) processes, we can soften or harden the materials used in our aluminium foundry until they are suited to subsequent processing. Most often used to increase the strength of an alloy, it can also aid the machinability of the castings to improve finish machining tolerances.
Heat treating requires precise control over temperature to achieve the desired results, as it is important to make sure that the aluminium alloy remains within an exact temperature range for the correct length of time, and cools at the proper rate. We have 3 ovens on site, which gives us great capacity for even the highest production demands.
