Advantages of Normalizing
The normalizing process is often referred to as a homogenizing treatment where the component is heated to an elevated temperature and then allowed to cool to room temperature. The process produces a uniform microstructure. This improved uniformity is beneficial to both machining and subsequent heat treating.
Precision Thermal Processing has multiple normalizing furnaces that can process loads up to 20,000 lbs. and component lengths up to 144.”
Components Which Benefit From Normalizing
- Gears / Pinions
- Valves & Valve Seats

EXPLORE THERMAL PROCESSES
The Hardening process for most alloyed components is accomplished by heating to a temperature above its critical transition temperature. The steel is then quenched and tempered to achieve the final desired properties.
Induction hardening is a selective surface hardening process in which a metal part is induction-heated in an energy field (coil) and then quenched to achieve its required properties. This process allows for selective hardening of the component in chosen areas without affecting the part as a whole.
