Thermal Processes

Hardening & Tempering
Thermal processes are all Heat Treatment processes which only involve heating of the products to be treated. With these processes the company is able to optimize the mechanical properties of the products.

Annealing
Annealing processes serve to influence the structure of the material or to reduce internal tensions. These processes are done at temperatures up to approximately 1150°C.

Sub-Zero Treatments
Sub-Zero Treatments are processes where the products are treated at a temperature below zero degrees Celcius. The treatment can be an additional step in the hardening process to reach optimal results in hardness and structure of the material or can be part of an aging process

Thermochemical Processes

Carburizing
Carburizing is one of the thermochemical processes. During this process the edge of workpieces is enriched with carbon to improve the mechanical properties of the edge layer of the workpiece. Case hardening typically consists of three steps. Read more for a complete description.

Carbonitriding
Carbonitriding is one of the thermochemical processes. During this process the edge of workpieces is enriched with carbon and Nitrogen to improve the mechanical properties of the edge layer of the workpiece. Carbonitriding – similar to carburizing Carburizing – typically consists of three steps. In the first step, workpieces are exposed to a carbon and nitrogen emitting environment. This increases the carbon and nitrogen percentage at the edge of the workpiece.

Nitriding
Nitriding belongs to the thermochemical processes. During this processes the surface of several workpieces or machine parts is enriched with nitrogen to improve the mechanic properties of the surface of the workpieces or machine parts.

Nitrocarburizing
Nitrocarburizing belongs to the thermochemical processes. During this processes the surface of several workpieces or machine parts is enriched with nitrogen and carbon to improve the mechanic properties of the surface of the workpieces or machine parts.

Nitrotec®
Nitrotec® is a worldwide trademarked surface engineering process for the treatment of steels and cast irons carried out in the temperature range of 590 -740°C using a gaseous nitrogen bearing atmosphere.

Stainihard®
Surface hardening of Stainless Steel
Stainihard® NC is a process to harden the surface of (austenitic and duplex) stainless steel, without having a negative effect on its corrosion resistance. In some cases this is even improved. The treatment is based on the classic nitro-carbonation in gas. Stainihard® NC is a variation, which makes it possible to apply this process to stainless steel. As with other diffusion processes products can be treated as single work pieces as well as in bulk. With Stainihard® NC the surface is enriched with nitrogen and carbon to improve the mechanical properties of the product.

Brazing

Aluminium Brazing
Brazing of Aluminium is a complex process, at Hauck Heat Treatment we can offer several solutions for specific applications.

High Temperature / Vacuum Brazing
Vacuum Brazing is a process that creates high quality joints under temperatures from about 800°C to 1150°C in a vacuum atmosphere. This also allows for the joining of different materials like for example ceramic to steel.

Belt Furnace Brazing
Belt Furnace Brazing is a cost-efficient and continuous process that simultaneously applies brazing joints to relatively high volumes of components.

Thin Layer Processes

Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD)/Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD)
Vapour Deposition is the English term for surface treatment through vapour. This vapour may be produced by Chemical reactions (CVD) or physical reactions (PVD). Chemical reactions occur at high temperatures (from 800 °C). Physical reactions occur from a plasma, which means that exactly through these reactions at very low temperatures (starting at room temperature), layers can be added. PVD can also be applied to all solid materials that you can think of, metal, ceramics, glass as well as plastics.  These techniques originate combinations with unique properties.
