Tempering - Knowledge

Tempering is a heat treatment process aimed at changing the microstructure of metal materials by heating and cooling them, in order to regulate hardness, improve toughness, and reduce brittleness. Tempering is commonly used in the heat treatment process of metal materials such as quenched and tempered steel and alloy steel.W52Muffle Furnace,Tube Furnace,Vacuum Furnace,Atmosphere Furnac

Tempering process:W52Muffle Furnace,Tube Furnace,Vacuum Furnace,Atmosphere Furnac

Heating: Reheating metal materials that have been quenched or normalized to a certain temperature range. This temperature is usually lower than the quenching temperature, usually between 400 ° C and 700 ° C.W52Muffle Furnace,Tube Furnace,Vacuum Furnace,Atmosphere Furnac
Insulation: Keep the metal material at the tempering temperature for a certain period of time to ensure uniform internal temperature and change the microstructure.W52Muffle Furnace,Tube Furnace,Vacuum Furnace,Atmosphere Furnac
Cooling: Cool the heated and insulated metal material to room temperature. The cooling rate can be natural cooling or controlled by controlling the cooling medium.

The effect of tempering:W52Muffle Furnace,Tube Furnace,Vacuum Furnace,Atmosphere Furnac

Improving toughness: The tempering process can eliminate the internal stress of the quenched metal material and readjust its microstructure, thereby improving the toughness of the metal material.W52Muffle Furnace,Tube Furnace,Vacuum Furnace,Atmosphere Furnac
Reducing hardness: The tempering process can reduce the hardness of metal materials, making them more machinable and reducing brittleness. It is suitable for some applications that do not require high hardness but require toughness.W52Muffle Furnace,Tube Furnace,Vacuum Furnace,Atmosphere Furnac
Improving the uniformity of mechanical properties: The tempering process can make the microstructure of metal materials more uniform, improving the stability and consistency of their mechanical properties.

Tempering plays a crucial role in multiple industries. For example, in the automotive manufacturing industry, components such as crankshafts, pistons, and camshafts need to undergo tempering treatment to improve their mechanical properties and wear resistance. Similarly, in the mechanical manufacturing industry, various tools, cutting tools, molds, etc. also need to undergo tempering treatment to improve their service life and performance. In steel metallurgy, tempering is an important process used to adjust the properties of quenched steel, making it suitable for manufacturing various structural components, bearings, springs, etc.Click to learn more heat treatment furnace!
