Happy Valentine’s Day from your friends at Anderson Shumaker. We don’t know what your special plans are, but on the shop floor, we like to keep things burning hot all year round… in our heat treatment department!
Did you know that heat treating plays a significant role in the forging process? We use heat treating to optimize our products’ mechanical and physical properties. While one might think heating only hardens metal, these treatments are also used to soften metal. This allows operations such as deep drawing, cold forging, and machining. When a product needs increased strength and wear resistance, Anderson Shumaker employs hardening and tempering treatments. Heat treating can also develop hard surfaces with ductile base materials.
We’re proud to offer heat treatment in-house. Keeping this vital step in our hands not only saves our clients time and money, but our electronically controlled furnaces ensure both temperature and accuracy, which gives us control on variables and documentation. At Anderson Shumaker, we love to keep the heat up and the costs down.
