Why use Heat treatment:
Heat treatment can be used to apply pre heat which removes moisture and eliminates thermal strains caused during welding which may cause cracks.
Post weld heat treatment removes the stresses caused during welding and returns the meteorological composition.
Heat treatment can be used to soften metals for improved machining stability, and to harden metals to improving resistance to corrosion and caustic embrittement. These methods can save you thousands in high wear areas or in machining tools. Heat treatment can save time and money by preventing weld repairs and increasing the life of the alloy.
Local heat treatment or Electrical resistance heating can evenly and very precisely heat pieces or even a large mass of steel. Ceramic electrical elements are separately controlled to minimize heat variation or local hot spots. This is the most cost invective and precise form of heat treatment.
