Advanced Heat Treat offers a wide variety of surface and core hardness testing, case depth determination, carbon content determination, consultation, microstructural analysis, salt spray testing and any other metallurgical lab services as needed.
Heat treatment of parts is often an afterthought for design engineers. Rather than being a part of the discussion in the early stages of design, designers try to solve problems at the point of manufacturing-or even after. While each type of heat treatment provides its own unique set of properties and benefits, each process also has limitations that could be addressed early on in the design process to ensure optimal performance.
