To understand the underlying principles of our heat treatment processes, please read the relevant documentation on the subject in the Customer Reports section of our website.

Allow me to introduce the fundamental principles supporting our innovative approach, namely, the Larson-Miller parameter and the more recent Holloman-Jaffe parameter. To fully appreciate the demonstration of these principles, go to the Reports – Stress relieving section of our website, where you will find a few articles, such as the 2013 article High-speed tempering of gears: A comparative study, which provides a good synthesis of our work. For a more practical perspective, the articles Test Report Axles Shaft 1 and 2, also on our website, accurately describe how we are able to lower our treatment times to satisfy customer demands in terms of thermal treatment results. You will find all this and more in my upcoming blogs.
