Thermal processing is a vital part of any manufacturing operation. It includes a variety of techniques and specialist engineering processes, which improves the properties of metals and alloys, and extends the life of components. The relieving of internal stresses, refinement of grain structure, and improving mechanical and physical properties are all benefits of thermal processing. Standard and custom die forgings by thermal processing are consistent from piece to piece, without porosity, voids, inclusions, or other defects. Finishing operations, such as machining, do not expose voids because there aren’t any. And coating operations, such as plating or painting, can be easier and faster due to a good surface, which needs very little preparation.
Clifford-Jacobs supplies forgings in any heat-treated condition to meet the demands of your application.
