Key Advantages of Using Vacuum Heat Treatment

Oxidation causes the metal surface to lose its metallic luster, increase surface roughness, decrease accuracy, and cause quenching soft spots and cracking. Oxidation can also reduce steel strength and other mechanical properties.

Fremont, CA: Almost all heat treatment processes, including quenching, annealing, tempering, carburizing and nitriding may be accomplished using vacuum heat treatment. It may perform gas quenching, oil quenching, nitrification quenching, water quenching, and other quenching processes. When compared to regular heat treatment, it offers the following benefits:

• The workpiece deformation

The workpiece is generally heated in the furnace by heat radiation. The internal and exterior temperature differences are modest, the thermal stress is small, and the vacuum heat treatment process parts deformation is small. While heating and quenching under vacuum, automatic completion reduces artificial processing deformation by avoiding the workpiece being carried in a hot state (although salt bath treatment and atmosphere protection treatment in an anaerobic environment, still in the air or oxygen molecules containing quenching medium to complete the quenching).

• No oxidation, no decarbonization, no carbon within the workpiece, and the surface has a good protective effect.

Oxidation causes the metal surface to lose its metallic luster, increase surface roughness, decrease accuracy, and cause quenching soft spots and cracking. Oxidation can also reduce steel strength and other mechanical properties.

Vacuum heat treatment involves heating metal at a low temperature while avoiding contact with oxygen. It prevents the workpiece from oxidizing or decarburizing, resulting in a brilliant surface and improved heat treatment quality. There will be no reduction process in a vacuum, and there will be no growth in carbon. The advantages of vacuum heat treatment may readily be seen compared to the workpiece surface, from adding a protection agent to vacuum quenching.

• Vacuum heat treatment furnace with high thermal efficiency

A vacuum heat treatment furnace may accomplish quick heating and cooling with high thermal efficiency. Stability and consistency are important. Working conditions are pleasant, operations are safe, and no pollution.

• Can reduce the workpiece volatility of alloy

Vacuum heat treatment allows for heating and vacuum quenching in a controlled environment, limiting the volatility of the workpiece's gold element and ensuring the workpiece's heat treatment quality.
