Heat treating, a technique in which metal is heated and cooled under strict conditions to improve its characteristics, performance, and toughness, is required for almost everything.
Heat-treating is the process of altering the characteristics of materials like metals or crystal by heating them. At low and high temperatures, it is used to hardness, modify, or change various properties of materials with differing crystal structures.
The nature of transformation varies on the temperature that the material is heated to, how fast it is heated, how long it is maintained heated, what temperature it is first cooled to, and how fast it is cooled.
Automobiles, aircraft, spacecraft, computers, and heavy equipment of many kinds rely on heat-treated parts to function properly. Heat treatment is required for saws, axes, cutting tools, bearings, gears, axles, fasteners, camshafts, and crankshafts.
There are three essential steps to heat treating:
- To get to a certain temperature, you’ll need to heat it up.
- Keeping the temperature at that level for the right amount of time
- Cooling exactly according to requirements
Heat Treating Market Growth Analysis
From 2021 to 2028, the Heat Treating Market is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 4.5 percent, from USD 88,543 million in 2020 to more than USD 125,917 million in 2028.
Over the next eight years, the growing penetration of heat treating applications in the aerospace, automotive, construction, machining, and electrical and electronics industries is expected to be the primary market driver. Two critical application categories are automotive and aerospace. The rapidly expanding need for commercial vehicles as a result of strong aviation demand and increased air passenger traffic is driving the demand for heat treating services in aerospace.
