The SECO/WARWICK Heat Treating Data Book contains information about heat treating metals. This book is not intended as a text, but rather as a collection of frequently used reference data to serve persons interested in heat treating technology. If it saves you time, we feel it will have accomplished its purpose.
Engineering data for Aluminum Tempers including specifications and designations for the most common aluminum materials. Aluminum is a lightweight structural material that can be strengthened through alloying and, depending upon composition, further strengthened by heat treatment and/or cold working.

Very good detail chart for heat treating Steel changes color as it is heated in a forge. THis is an important thing for the blacksmith to know and observe. Here I show you the color changes of the steel and how it changes in workability. color change when hardening metal - - Yahoo Image Search Results
Heat treating processes for aluminum are precision processes. They must be carried out in furnaces properly designed and built to provide the thermal conditions required, and adequately equipped with control instruments to insure the desired continuity and uniformity of temperature-time cycles.
The following chart may be used as a guideline for predicting final hardness. Hold times depend on the size of the heat treat load and furnace size. A guideline is to hold 2X the length of time required for the parts to reach temperature. Wear Rate Comparisons Heat Treated Ductile and Steel Revolutions (@100rpm) Volume Wear, cm3x10 0.15 0.2 0.1 ...
Heat Treating of Aluminum Alloys HEAT TREATING in its broadest sense, refers to any of the heating and cooling operations that are performed for the pur- pose of changing the mechanical properties, the metallurgical structure, or the residual stress state of a metal product. When the term is applied to aluminum alloys, howev-
Heat treat ovens and tempering furnaces are commonly referred to as Companion Draw Furnaces or Draw Batch Furnaces. Wisconsin Oven’s draw batch ovens feature heavy duty furnace construction, which includes a plate steel outer shell, a reinforced steel plate oven front, a lined inner shell, and exterior structural reinforcements as required.
The Aluminum Heat Treatment Process The parts will be loaded in the basket, are loaded up into the furnace, and they have a dwell time at temperate. And then once that happens, we will roll the ...
