NPCS Launches Book On "Heat Treatment Of Automobiles"

Nothing can be manufactured without heat treatment including automobiles in which metals are heated and cooled in a controlled manner it improve its performance, durability, properties etc. This books covers everything which is necessary to perform heat treatment.

Online PR News – 02-March-2014 – New Delhi, Delhi – Heat Treatment is necessary for all kind of heavy equipments including spacecrafts, aircrafts, automobiles, ships, heavy machinery etc. It can do wonders with the metal like improving its corossion resistance that would otherwise corrode, improve its strength, harden the soft metals etc.

Iron & Steel condtitute the major portion of heat treated metals, but with the modernization of the industry, various alloys of metals like nicke, copper, magnesium, titanium or aliminium are also heat treated for various applications

Generally heat treatment invlolves three basic steps:-

1) Depending on the application, heating the give metal to a specified temperature
2) Holding at that temperature for the appropriate amount of time.
3) Cooling the metal as per the methods.

All these steps are varied depending on the metal under heat treatment and its application

Heat Treatment Methods

There are various methods of heat treatment. Some of them are listed below

1) Nitriding
2) Vaccum Heat Teat
