High-quality heat treatment is a necessity in order to achieve the full potential of the tooling material. Slight changes to tempering temperatures can be the real difference when optimising resistance against common failure mechanisms and increasing overall performance.
For your benefit, we are committed to supporting you with the most appropriate heat treatment advice and service for our high-performance steels.
Our High-performance Steel’s (HPS) are normally delivered in the soft annealed condition, thus making it easier for our customers to manufacture components via machining processes and giving a suitable microstructure for hardening. The tool steel can then easily be heat treated according to the tool user’s specific needs.
Uddeholm can support you with heat treatment services such as:
- Soft annealing
- Stress relieving
- Hardening and tempering
In the U.K. We use approved suppliers of heat treatment and can help you select the perfect partner based on your location and required services. We can also support with advice on the optimal treatment processing for each of our high-performance steel grades.
Details of heat treatment can be found in our various Data Sheets, However, if you have any heat treatment queries whatsoever, please do not hesitate to Contact us.
