E.C. Styberg employs air and oil quenching processes. Mitigating shape deformation is one the many challenges handled regularly.
Products that normally see an improvement with heat treating:
High load backing plates
Mounting brackets that require a thin window for thickness but must handle high stresses
Separator plates that require a hardened core
Styberg has a group of engineers that can answer any question you may have; provide material selection consultation and the proper heat treatment process for your part.
