Our Heat Treatment Capabilities
Here at IIDEA Limited 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, 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 in house:
Hardening (Water or Oil Quenching)
Heat Treatment Equipment
Our Vecstar TRF3 furnace has internal dimensions of 300mm x 300mm x 450mm resulting in a 40 litre working volume. We can heat treat metallic items at a sustained temperature of up to 1200°C, making it ideal for heat treatment trials and the heat treatment of complex metallic materials as part of the production process.
If other Heat Treatment processes are required, we have a good working relationship with local providers and can add this into the manufacturing process at the correct point.
