Heat Treatment

Our aim: 100% quality!

Our customers come, among others, from the aviation and aerospace industry, the automotive industry, as well as engineering. Our heat treatment facilities set benchmarks regarding the state of the art, which are already available for our customers. From special components to low and high-volume production, using special procedures such as heat treatment we process:

  • in vacuum
  • in protective atmosphere and process gases
  • in salt bath
  • in plasma
  • via induction heating.

We are developing advanced heat treatment procedures according to the customer’s required performance characteristics. The procedures are then recorded in the customer’s documentation and the exclusivity of their product is reserved.
