The controlled heating and cooling of metals to alter their physical and mechanical properties without changing the product shape. We ensure that every heat treat order conforms to your specifications and other requirements through appropriate testing and inspection techniques.
Grinding is an abrasive machining process that uses a grinding wheel as the cutting tool. It can produce very fine finishes and very accurate dimensions; yet in mass production contexts it can also rough out large volumes of metal quite rapidly.
Trepanning is a drilling process that leaves a core. Trepanning is a deep hole drilling process that has broad application over many industries. In many cases, trepanning is meant to be a roughing operation to be honed for finish, or machined further. In other cases, the trepanned hole is fit for use 'as-drilled'.
Turning is a metalworking process by which a disc or tube of metal is rotated at high speed and formed into an axially symmetric part. Spinning can be performed by hand or by a CNC lathe.
A water-jet is a tool capable of slicing into metal or other materials using a jet of water at high velocity and pressure, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance. It is the preferred method when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods.
Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
Uses high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements. Ultrasonic inspection can be used for flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurements, material characterization, and more.
Divulges the behavior of a material when force is applied. Mechanical testing shows whether a materials or part is suitable for its intended mechanical applications by measuring elasticity, tensile strength, elongation, hardness, and fatigue limit.
A burr is a raised edge or small piece of material remaining attached to a workpiece after a modification process. It is usually an unwanted piece of material and is removed with a deburring tool in a process called 'deburring'. Burrs are most commonly created by machining operations, such as grinding, drilling, milling, engraving or turning.
Sandblasting is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface, or remove surface contaminants. A pressurized fluid, typically compressed air, or a centrifugal wheel is used to propel the blasting material
Forging is often classified according to the temperature at which it is performed: cold forging (a type of cold working), warm forging, or hot forging (a type of hot working). For the latter two, the metal is heated, usually in a forge. Forged parts can range in weight from less than a kilogram to hundreds of metric tons.
