Vacuum Bright Annealing
It is the process of cooling an object at a predetermined rate to achieve a specific effect. Often, bright annealing is used to make materials, such as metals, less brittle or to soften materials for further shaping or working. The process can be used on many metals, including stainless steel, cobalt, chrome, high temperature alloys and titanium. Vacuum bright annealing produces extremely clean parts, eliminating many steps from the manufacturing process. Bright annealing is commonly used in the aerospace and medical industries, as well as in military and automotive applications. NATIONAL HEAT TREAT has 2 furnaces capable of performing this process.
