Thermal’s heat treatment equipment is widely used in the metal (steel and nonferrous metal) industry and other fields.
The heating source of the equipment uses an electrical resistance heating system that enables accurate control. Our strength lies in small-lot production in heat treatment of steel, as well as bright treatment and large-volume production in heat treatment of stainless steel and nonferrous metals.
Steel heat treatment is a process to alter the properties of metal shapes by hardening or softening them according to their applications, without changing their shapes.
|Cold work tool steel||Caulking, deep drawing, forging, dies, stamping|
|Hot work tool steel||Die casting, casting molds, forging, dies|
|High-speed tool steel||Drills, end mils, taps, reamers, injection molds for plastics|
|Tools and jigs||Probes, collet chucks, punches|
|Parts||Gears, springs, clutches, bearings, screws, chains|
|Products||Latch needles, fish hooks, pocket knives, kitchen knives, saws|
Generally, heat treatment heats the target work to temperatures higher than the transformation point of the metal, which causes the work’s surface to combine with moisture and oxygen in the air, resulting in oxidation.
The bright heat treatment is a process to change this surface to a bright (glittery silver white) condition.
|Annealing||Flexible pipes, pipes for automobile components, watch parts, bellows, pressed parts|
|Solution heat treatment||Stainless steel pipes, tableware, stainless steel watch bands, pressed parts|
|Quenching||Kitchen knives, scissors, disc brakes, tools, cutting tools, micro-shafts for small motors|
|Brazing||Heat exchangers, automobile parts, hydraulic equipment, gas appliances, building parts, farm equipment parts, stainless steel filters|
Heat treatment of nonferrous metals is basically the same as that of steel. The heat treatment alters the properties (hardness, softness, ductility) of nonferrous metals without changing their shapes by a combination of heating and cooling.
|Material||Copper alloys, aluminum alloys, titanium alloys, gold, silver|
|Products||Connector parts, contacting materials, automobile wheels, eyeglass frames, fashion accessories, automobile parts, aircraft parts|
