    Hardening & Tempering

    Hardening and tempering produce required hardness ratios in metals like steel or stainless steel to ensure desired performance. Harding, as well as case hardening, and straight hardening, involves heating the metal and then cooling it to transform its standard properties, while tempering is a process of applying low-temperature heat treatments, generally after a hardening process has been completed.

  • Annealing

    Annealing is used to reduce a material's hardness and increase it's ductility by changing its physical and/or chemical properties. Annealing is performed by heating and slowing cooling the material (generally metal or glass).
