TC Specializes in:
- LP Annealing
- Process Annealing
- Bars, Tubes, Flats and Squares
Process annealing results in mixed microstructures containing various amounts of lamellar pearlite and a fraction of spherodite. Process annealing is used to restore ductility to material thereby improving its ability to be cold worked.
LP annealing results in a predominant microstructure of lamellar pearlite. LP annealing is used to improve machinability.
We are equipped with an annealing furnace that has a hot zone of eighty feet in length. It is an open fired continuous roller hearth furnace. There is no protective atmosphere. The subsequent zone is approximately one hundred feet, providing a slow furnace cool. This furnace can accommodate material up to thirty nine feet in length.
