Achieve the Ultimate Heat Treating Control
Heat Treating is a tightly controlled process, used in most manufactured goods, in which the mechanical or chemical properties of a metal are altered through the application of heat and controlled cooling. In vacuum heat treating, the potentially harmful atmospheric gases are removed by a vacuum pumping system. This process maintains the surface chemistry and appearance of the part, which helps make the metal more suitable for the application in which it will be used. Stack Metallurgical Group provides a wide array of heat-treating processes for our customers, such as: annealing, quenching, precipitation hardening, and stress relieving.
Our vacuum department is state-of-the-art and constantly maintained to ensure peak performance. Our furnaces can process loads up to 8,000 lbs., at temperatures that range from 300 °F to 2200 °F, and gas quenching utilizing either argon or nitrogen as quenchants, at pressures up to 6 bar.
We proudly offer unique cycles to meet our customers needs at an affordable price, ensuring we stay on schedule to meet deadlines that customers in critical industries – such as aerospace and medical need to meet.
