4000 mm x 3000 mm furnace with a 10 tonne loading capacity

Reducing the heat affected zone to ensure quality

Offering both post-cutting and pre-grinding heat treatment, our ovens are capable of normalising and stress relieving up to a maximum temperature of 1000°C, with a capacity of 4000 mm x 3000 mm and a height of 2250 mm.

Cutting processes using extreme temperatures, such as flame, laser and plasma cutting, create a Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) that can alter the property and microstructure of a metal. In some cases this can weaken a material or lead to it becoming more brittle. P.P. Profiles’ heat treatment services are suitable for both full supply and free issue profiles and will reduce the heat affected zone. Full fabricated structures or single plates can be treated. With custom heat cycles and overnight turnaround, our mild steel heat treatment services provide you with a bespoke, resourceful service.

Benefits of heat treatment

Easier to machine metal without cracking or splitting
Reduction of the heat affected zone (HAZ)
Can be used on finished fabricated products too, not just profiles
