Heat Treatment

Our wide range of safety critical fasteners are subjected to the application of heat in order to achieve the desired alteration in rigidity, smoothness, malleability and material strength. We conduct hardening and tempering to ensure our fasteners meet the required strength and hardness class. We do this to prevent unacceptable safety risks in the application of the fasteners.

The range of heat treatment and quench facilities mean that we can offer the best choice for a wide range of carbon, low alloy and specialist steel grades.

These operations are supported by stringent quality assurance and where appropriate thermal modelling of heating and quenching can be undertaken to ensure component integrity.

Our furnaces are batch furnaces in which the heating and quenching chambers are combined in a single unit, ensuring that our fasteners are always under a controlled environment and never exposed to air whilst at temperature.

Ensuring top quality for our customers is our highest priority. With many components being used in safety critical applications, our quality standards must always be exact.

Our Heat treatment Qualification are as follows: RCCM/API and AMS2750.

Our extensive experience with various material grades and their relative properties allows us to identify and utilize the most appropriate heat treatments to produce the required metallurgical attributes.

Our aim is to provide our partners with a competitive edge through our capacity and flexibility. One way we do this is to work with our partners to tighten heat tolerances on their fasteners, which means we get the best results every time.
