Stress Relieving in Plymouth, MI
Professional Stress Relieving Heat Treatment for Stronger Metal Components
Heat treating a metal piece is an intense series of processes causing the unit to undergo changes to its chemical composition and structure. The actions of bending, grinding, quenching, welding, and more all introduce varying levels of tension to the material. To reduce the impact of stress, RMT heat-treating professionals use stress-relieving to remove this tension as a step in the overall manufacturing process of a final product.
Left untreated, stress lurking in metal is a recipe for disaster in the future. Items with residual stress are at risk of having dimensional changes occur during later manufacturing stages or in post-production use. Stress has a way of finding a release. This release can be planned, such as during the process of stress-relieving, or it will occur eventually, possibly during another heat-treatment process. Taking a proactive step in preventing problems will end up saving you time and money.
