Complete Annealing Heat Treatment in Plymouth, MI | RMT Woodworth - annealingImprove Your Metal Parts with Complete Annealing Heat Treatment

Annealing is a heat treatment process that reduces residual stress, makes materials easier to process with CNC machines and homogenizes grain structures, thus dissipating alloy segregation. When anneal heat treating a material, we soften it through the removal of crystal defects - the source of the stress. Then we nucleate and grow strain-free grains in the unit.

During the annealing process, professionals send a metal part through heating, temperature maintenance, and cooling stages.

First, our operators will heat metal beyond the upper critical temperature, causing rapid structural conversion to austenite. Then, the material is held in a constant temperature for a specific time allotment producing a homogenous structure. Finally, the steel cools in a forced state below critical temperatures (around 600 to 700 degrees centigrade). By the end of the process, we have low carbon and alloy steels ready for further machining.

We use annealing in the following processes: bending, castings, forgings, forming, hydroforming, machining, shaping, and stamping.
