Heat treatment center

The member program Heat treatment center for metallic materials is a center for research and development in the field of heat treatment.

RISE and Swerim together with a number of member companies run the Heat treatment center. By heat treatment is meant the "secondary" heat treatment of steel parts that take place on components that are further refined through some form of machining such as forging or metal cutting. Since the products have a high added value and are late in the production chain, it is a very important part in many manufacturing chains.

Extensive research

Within the membership program, R&D projects are carried out with a focus on the impact of the design, the material and the process on the performance, lead time and costs of heat-treated products and with the aim of reducing energy consumption and emissions. The principle processes are case hardening, deep hardening, induction hardening and nitriding/nitrocarburizing, as well as related pre- and post-treatments.
