Treatment of steel
of steel is the process of heating and cooling of carbon steel to
change the steel's physical and mechanical properties without changing
the original shape and size.
is often associated with increasing the strength of the steel, but
it can also be used to alter certain manufacturability objectives
such as improve machinability, formability, restore ductility etc.
Thus heat treating is a very useful process to helps other manufacturing
processes and also improve product performance by increasing strength
or provides other desirable characteristics. High carbon steels
are particularly suitable for heat treatment, since carbon steel
respond well to heat treatment and the commercial use of steels
exceeds that of any other material.
There are many
difference types of heat treating processes, it individual process
provides different desirable characteristics to the product.
