Standard Heat Treatment

Home » Standard Heat Treatment

Doxon’s standard Heat Treatment is the process in which metallic/steel parts are exposed completely or partially to time-temperature sequences in order to change the mechanical and/or corrosion properties.

Standard heat treatment as below:
• Annealing
• normalizing
• Hardening
• Tempering
• stress relieving

Conventional Heat treatments are done to ferrous materials to achieve a higher strength of the material, better wear resistance or to improve the corrosion behaviour of the components. All of these processes need a temperature up to 1.000 °C and higher as well as especially developed furnaces to achieve such ranges. Ferrous material: A286, 15-5PH, 17-4PH, 17-7PH, etc

Doxon also performs solution heat treatment and precipitation hardening for non-ferrous materials such as aluminium alloys AL 6061 and AL 7075. For solution heat treatment of non-ferrous materials, the work pieces are held at a high temperature for a prescribed period of time to dissolve the solute completely. This forms a single-phase structure. The material is then quenched to achieve a supersaturated solution.

To achieve higher strength and hardness, this is followed by precipitation hardening. These alloys can be treated at different sets of processing parameters to acquire the desired physical and mechanical properties of specific designation as per the international standards.

Solution and precipitation hardening heat treatment are done to of non-ferrous material eg: AL 7075, AL 7178, AL 6061, Ti 6Al 4V, etc
