Heat Treating Precision Cast Parts

In many cases, heat treating precision cast parts is an important part of the investment casting process. Heat treating can achieve an array of desired characteristics and properties. After a part has been cast it can be heated to temperatures as high as 3,000° F or more to alter the molecular structure of the alloy. Heat treating can be combined with slow or rapid cooling based upon the alloy and need to significantly improve the strength, structural consistency, ductility and a variety of other properties. The result is higher-quality parts that meet performance requirements and specifications.
