Heat treatment
Heat treatment processes: tempering, normalisation, blackening, soft annealing, full annealing and selective hardening.

Computer controlled processes

All our heat treatment processes are computer controlled:

  • to ensure high levels of reproducibility and traceability;
  • to build a database for follow-up analyses and development.

Heat treatment recipes are the result of ongoing training combined with in-house development know-how passing from one generation to the next through the five decades of technological tradition in our company. 

4.000 tensile (destructive) tests per year

The heat treatment processes are tested and verified with mechanical property testing. Each year we carry out 4,000 tensile tests on our 100-ton machine. We continually develop new heat treatment technologies for new materials. The heat treatment processes are also validated in our laboratory.
