Metal Hardening Services

Once we've heated the metal alloy to its critical temperature, at which structural changes occur, we cool it quickly. We offer heating and cooling methods for many types of steel alloys. Each technique produces a hardness and strength specific to the type of steel used. Our facilities use the following cooling techniques:

  • Air cooling
  • Vacuum annealing and hardening
  • Oil quenching
  • Water quenching
  • Atmosphere annealing and hardening

Tools that are treated with proper hardening techniques are tempered to ensure their durability and toughness in high-stress operational conditions.

The Need For Tool Steel Hardening

When you're going to be working with tools that endure a lot of wear and tear, you're going to benefit from hardened tool steel. Through hardening and tempering, our technicians will prepare your tools to stand up to a lot more than they would without this process.

Heat treatment of steel starts the process. After concentrating heating, the tool will then be submerged into a substance such as oil or salt water to set off the hardening process. This is then repeated.

While hardened tool steel may sound like something that's easy to produce, that is not the case. At Burbank Steel Treating, Inc. we work using methods we've developed over the years to ensure optimal strength at points of your tools that will experience more use. Tool steel hardening should be done by certified professionals with the experience to get you the exceptional results you deserve.

Cost Estimates

Heat treatment is essential in creating tools that do their job properly, and for a long time. For some just starting out in their respective industries this may not seem like an investment you can make, but once you've worked with treated vs. non-treated tools you'll appreciate the difference.
