Is in-house or outsourced heat treating better for your operations? This is the single question asked by all manufacturers who require heat treating for their parts. And the truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.
For OEMs and suppliers who already have equipment and are outgrowing their current capacity, there may be an urgent need to handle overflow. In this case, the question becomes, will the need for increased capacity last? How likely is ROI on your capital investment?
