Best Practices for Heat Treating Machined Parts

The term “machined parts” refers to components produced using mechanical CNC technology such as a multi-axis lathe, mill, Swiss lathe, or machining center. These parts typically have controlled dimensions and tolerances and are used in high-precision applications.

Preventing Distortion

Your CNC machined components are produced to exacting tolerance requirements, so distortion from improper heat treatment could send your parts to the scrap bin. The right quench media along with quench and cooling rates ensure your parts retain their dimensions so they perform dependably and safely in your application.

Just-In-Time Processing

With more and more manufacturers adopting just-in-time (JIT) inventory models, we strategically schedule our processes to maximize throughput and deliver optimal turnaround times.

Machined Parts We Process

  • Precision medical tools
  • Automotive tooling
  • Automotive fasteners and bolts
  • Aerospace fasteners
  • Electronics
  • Rotary tooling such as cutting dies

Through Hardening

Through hardening yields consistent hardness throughout the geometry of the part, and is used for applications that require high strength. Fasteners and bolts for aerospace and automotive are machined parts usually processed by through hardening. Solid rotary dies for die-cutting applications are also through hardened to prolong the useful life of the tools.

Vacuum Heat Treating

Medical tools are usually processed in our vacuum furnaces, which can run processes such as vacuum annealing, vacuum tempering, vacuum hardening, and solution treating. Vacuum heat treating helps to prevent scale from forming on tool steels and stainless steels.
