Aluminum Heat Treating

Our management team and entire staff are here to service your metal finishing needs. No aluminum heat treating job is too big or too small for us to handle. Our customers value our expertise, and enjoy the team approach that we bring to working together, along with very open lines of communication.

We strive to be the best in the industry for Quality, Customer Service, Timely Deliveries.

You can be confident in our quality systems and guarantee that your parts are processed to meet your requirements. You and your customer benefit from the highest level of quality control procedures, documented by our AS9100 Rev C and ISO9001:2008 certification.

Every product (or group of products) is tested, tagged and documented. Your parts are not leaving our shop until we absolutely know they are right!

The process is verified by using hardness testing, electrical conductivity or tensile data so you won’t have to worry about the accuracy of the final product. You receive the exact metal conditions needed for your parts to be dependable and durable, above the minimum AMS hardness standard.

Statistical Process Control (SPC) is in effect and substantiated by tensile hardness testing and electrical conductivity testing with instruments traceable to the National Bureau of Standards (NBS).

Your advantage is our 38 years of experience in aluminum heat treating. Computer systems alone cannot be relied upon to protect a piece from distortion. With four options for quenching, we can minimize if not eliminate distortion.

Subdivision of T Temper: Thermally Treated

  1. Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. Applies to products that are not cold worked after cooling from an elevated temperature shaping process, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening may not be recognized in mechanical property limits.
  2. Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process, cold worked, and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. Applies to products that are cold worked to improve strength after cooling from an elevated temperature shaping process, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening is recognized in mechanical property limits.
  3. Solution heat-treated®, cold worked, and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. Applies to products that are cold worked to improve strength after solution heat-treatment, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening is recognized in mechanical property limits.
  4. Solution heat-treated® and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. Applies to products that are not cold worked after solution heat-treatment, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening may not be recognized in mechanical property limits.
  5. Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process and then artificially aged. Applies to products that are not cold worked after cooling from an elevated temperature shaping process, or in which the effect of co!d work in flattening or straightening straightening may not be recognized in mechanical property limits.
  6. Solution heat-treated® and then artificially aged. Applies to products that are not cold worked after solution heat-treatment, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening may not be recognized in mechanical property limits.
  7. Solution heat-treated® and overaged/stabilized. Applies to wrought products that are artificially aged after solution heat-treatment to carry them beyond a point of maximum strength to provide control of some significant characteristics. Applies to cast products that are artificially aged after solution heat-treatment to provide dimensional and strength stability.
  8. Solution heat-treated®, cold worked, and then artificially aged. Applies to products that are cold worked to improve strength, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening is recognized in mechanical property limits.
  9. Solution heat-treated®, artificially aged, and then cold worked. Applies to products that are cold worked to improve strength.
  10. Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process, cold worked, and then artificially aged. Applies to products that are cold worked to improve strength, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening is recognized in mechanical property limits.
