American Metal Treating’s line of vacuum furnaces includes a pair of Abar Ipsen “Turbo Treaters.” These specialized furnaces incorporate extremely fast initial quench rates with arrested cooling options.
The 200 horsepower variable speed, turbine cooling system is designed to reduce thermal gradients prior to computer programmed latter-stage cooling rates. This enables AMT to secure microstuructures necessary for optimizing physical properties while maintaining crucial dimensional stability.
AMT can continually provide the microstructure and hardness requirements on a wide variety of steels, including hard-to-handle grades such as CPM10V, T15, and H13 while minimizing heat treat distortion. Discerning manufacturers throughout the country, from tool, die and mold makers to the aerospace, nuclear and firearms industries, depend on American Heat Treating to deliver reproducible physical properties along with consistent microstructure.
