BRAZING Brazing is the joining of metals through the use of heat and a filler metal – one whose melting temperature is above 840°F(450°C) but below the melting point of the metals being joined. It is distributed between two or more close-fitting parts by capillary action. At its liquid temperature, the molten filler metal interacts with a thin layer of the base metal, cooling to form an exceptionally strong, sealed joint due to grain structure interaction. The brazed joint becomes a sandwich of different layers, each metallurgically linked to each other.

CRYOGENICS Cryogenic processing is in the sub-zero (below 0°C) range, though it is not well defined at what point on the temperature scale refrigeration ends and cryogenics begins. DCT (Deep Cryogenic Treatment) is considered below −180°C (−292.00°F) range. Cryogenic processing requires a process of time and temperatures (some above sub-zero) to achieve the required end result without damage to the product. The alloy or product and customer requirements determine the process requirements. Cryogenic treatment improves wear resistance and lengthens service life, giving you the edge in the competition against manufacturing costs and product superiority. Cryogenic effects have been most widely studied in the context of engineering steels, where it is used to complete the heat treatment process. In the common heat treat practice, the conversion from austenite to martensite is incomplete, which results in internal stresses that can weaken the metal and compromise its dimensional stability

HEAT TREATING Using advanced techniques to improve performance, strength and toughness. Heat Treating removes stresses such as those developed in processing or manufacturing and refines the grain structure of the metal. This process improves the economical grade of metal to use in place of something more expensive. Heat Treating increases tensile toughness, strength and ductility and can improve machine-ability and weld-ability, and also improves wear performance and the cutting properties of tool steels.
