At Unitech Machinery, we develop and manufacture high quality heat treatment ovens. Our ovens are bespoke to meet your exact needs, providing you with a long and trouble free service – at realistic and competitive prices.
Many ferrous and non-ferrous metals, (along with composites and plastics) undergo heat treatment before being put to use.
Heat treatment involves the heating and cooling of these metals. This includes a variety of processes from drying to stress relieving of many substrates, including metals, plastics and carbon fibre composites.
Oven heating can be provided by gas, electricity, steam or fuel oil.
Heat Treatment Ovens for Sale
From our Staffordshire factory and offices, we design and manufacture specialist heat treatment ovens. We then carry out installations throughout the UK and abroad.
Our industrial ovens are supplied to many industry sectors – notably aerospace and automotive industries, as well as composite manufacturing and plastic production facilities.
All of our ovens are built and sold to the same high standards, using a range of materials dependent upon the required temperature necessary for the process. They are designed to run continuously for many hours. Control systems offer a range of options for data logging and acquisition.
What are typical heat treating processes?
Annealing – The annealing process involves heating a substance above its specified temperature and then cooling it back down at a suitable rate to ambient temperature. The main reason for this is to soften the metal, making it a more workable material.
Tempering – Tempering is usually performed after hardening and is the process of reheating metal at low temperatures with subsequent cooling in still air. Tempering a material (such as steel) helps reduce the brittleness and removes any internal stresses caused by the rapid cooling of a metal.
