Heat Treatment Capabilities

At IIDEA Ltd we are able to provide heat treatment services for small components either as a "stand alone" service or as part of the manufacturing process for components.  Heat Treatment is undertaken to modify the microstructure and properties of metallic materials, to for example increase hardness or soften material or to make materials more fatigue or deformation resistant.

We have the capability to perform the following heat treatment processes:

  • Hardening (Water or Oil Quenching)

  • Tempering

  • Normalizing

  • Annealing

 

Heat Treatment Equipment

Our Vecstar TRF3 furnace has internal dimensions of 300mm x 300mm x 450mm giving a 40 litre working volume.  We can treat metallic items at a sustained temperature of 1200°C, making it ideal for heat treatment trials and testing.
