Heat Treatment

Heat treatment is not only fundamentally important to assure the good quality of tools and dies but it is also important for the application of other surface treatments like PVD coatings.

STS has the advantage of being able to coordinate both services, offering integrated solutions with maximum efficiency.

STS offers the following heat treatments:

  • Vacuum hardening and tempering (where you obtain physical, mechanical and chemical properties better than in conventional ovens).
  • Gas Nitriding
  • Oil hardening
  • Austempering
  • Cementation and hardening
  • Solubilization
  • Annealing and stretching

Because of the company’s long experience in metallurgy, and its use of vacuum treatment systems, STS can offer different processes for specific requirements, such as cutting tools, extrusion moulds, die casting moulds, plastic dies and shearing machine dies, to name a few.

The company also maintains a central archive with the complete data and parameters of every job performed
