Stress Relief Treatment

Bending, welding, grinding, rolling, cold working, quenching, stamping, and other operations, can introduce new stresses into the structure of a metal part. Stress relieving is a heat treatment process designed to relieve residual stresses caused any such manufacturing process. As these stresses cause changes in the granular structure of the metal, they can cause challenges in working with a metal component in the future.

This process must be controlled based on the metal or alloy. The temperature reached, and duration of the heating, and the cooling process precisely based on the material being treated.

KHT's state-of-the-art facilities allow for precise, controlled heat treatment for stress relieving steel and other metals. We also ensure all of our processes, including stress relieving steel, is constantly monitored and tracked for quality control throughout the process.
