Setting Industry Standards in Metal Heat Treating
Southwest Specialty Heat Treat takes pride in their work and always strives to give the customer what they need when they need it.
Engineers have learned how to improve many metals and tailor their properties to withstand the tasks at hand.
In metal heat treating, annealing is an important stage. Southwest Specialty Heat Treat, Inc. leverages years of experience and equipment to master the art of annealing, ensuring optimal softening and enhanced ductility for a variety of metals.
Elevating Mechanical Properties with Normalizing
Normalizing, a pivotal service offered by us, involves precise heating and controlled cooling. This process refines the grain structure of metals, enhancing mechanical properties and ensuring dimensional stability for diverse applications.
Quenching, a critical step in metal treatment, is an area where we excel. Their expertise lies in rapidly cooling heated metals, achieving the desired hardness and strength, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.
Tempering for Strength
Recognizing the significance of tempering post-quenching, we carefully heat and cool metals, achieving the perfect balance of hardness and toughness. The result is a durable metal capable of withstanding the rigors of its intended use.
We don’t just adhere to traditional methods. Our expertise extends to stress relieving, solution treatment, and flame hardening. Stress relieving reduces internal stresses, solution treating refines metal structures, and flame hardening selectively strengthens specific areas of the metal.
