Improve Tooling Durability with Metal Heat Treating Services
Metal heat treating services are designed to make superior, longer-lasting tooling. It involves heating up the metal until its microstructure changes. While in that state, it’s rapidly cooled, which hardens the metal. Heat treatments may be done throughout the manufacturing process, depending on the need. At Pivot Precision, we offer high-quality heat treating services to increase the durability of your tooling. Learn about our capabilities below or contact our team for more information.
