Advanced Heat Treat Corp. (AHT), a recognized leader in heat-treat services and metallurgical solutions, has purchased two additional induction units. The induction equipment, which is being custom built, is expected to be operational this spring.

The custom build will increase the heat treater’s induction hardening size capability, allowing them to handle parts up to 600 pounds in weight, 14 inches in diameter, and 51 inches in length.

AHT has offered UltraGlow® Induction Hardening in Waterloo, Iowa, since 1993 and has a wide array of coils on hand to accommodate various part geometries. AHT also runs three shifts for around-the-clock coverage.

AHT President Mikel Woods said, “We are excited to add more state-of-the art equipment. The new technology will ultimately allow us to be more efficient, resulting in even better turnaround times for our customers.”

AHT purchased two new induction units in 2019, as well.

“As our company’s mission statement says, we are committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations with UltraGlowing results,” Woods said.

Aside from UltraGlow Induction Hardening, AHT also offers carburizing, through hardening, annealing, stress relieve, carbonitriding, and other case hardening heat treatments at its Burton Avenue location. AHT also has a location in Waterloo which is focused on nitriding and nitrocarburizing.
