Increase Toughness and Resilience with High Quality Tempering
Tempering is a method of heat treating used to increase the toughness and resilience of iron-based alloys like steel. In this process the metal is heated to a precise temperature below the critical point. This is used to change and improve the hardness and elasticity of steel or other metal, making it easier to machine and obtain different combinations of mechanical properties in the material. Tempering can be an essential part of the machining process to ensure the quality of your pieces.
