WHAT WE OFFER

Hudapack’s capabilities in vacuum processing include stainless steel solution annealing, precipitation hardening, homogenizing of cast structures, normalizing, aging and tempering. We also support tool steel and high-speed steel hardening. Vacuum processing prevents scaling or decarburizing of the work surface with either nitrogen or argon gas quench.

WHY VACUUM PROCESSING?

Vacuum heat treat processing can vary covering a wide array of processes. One great advantage is the higher temperatures in which you can use for processing (up to 2400˚F) and controlling it. Operating under a vacuum (no oxygen is coming into contact with the surface of the material) will not form a decarburization layer on the surface. Quenching using an inert gas Argon or Nitrogen displaces any oxygen and keeps the surface of the parts bright. This includes:

HARDENING OF:

  • Tool Steels
  • Large Dies
  • PH Stainless Steels
  • Brazing

THERMAL PROCESSING:

  • Tempering
  • Annealing
  • Stress Relieving
  • Normalizing
  • Solution Annealing of Stainless Steel
  • Condition A of PH Stainless Steels
