Heat Treating for Automotive & Transportation Equipment

heat treating for the automotive & transportation equipment industry

Driven to provide the strength you need

When it comes to finding processes that strengthen your automotive metals, Linde can help your business race ahead. Heat treating enhances the strength and durability of metals, and we’ll work with you to build the toughest driving machines possible. We offer a diverse portfolio of heat treating applications that can improve the quality and appearance of your metals, make highly reproducible parts and give you better control over your process. 

Annealing

annealing

Annealing is the process of heating steel above the transformation temperature and slowly cooling it to increase the workability of the metal. Nitrogen or hydrogen-based atmospheres are also required to achieve a bright annealed surface finish.

Brazing

brazing

Furnace brazing is commonly used when large batches of parts are to be processed at one time. We provide a reducing atmosphere to help you produce higher quality joints, with controlled heat temperatures and improved production rates.

Carburizing & Hardening

carburizing

Carburizing is a heat treatment process in which steel absorbs carbon while the metal is heated. Our technology provides ideal conditions for better control and repeatability.
