Heat Treating / Annealing Services

In addition to offering high quality specialty plating services, Electro-Spec, Inc. offers heat treating, annealing, and stress relieving services suitable for a range of copper alloy and nickel alloy materials. Our process annealing capabilities go up to 1,000 °F, carried out in a protective nitrogen environment to eliminate heat scale. Parts are prepared in a specialized pre-treating process, which includes vacuum vapor degreasing and thorough cleaning. Post treatment, a hydrogen embrittlement relief process is administered, performed in line with AMS QQ-N-290 specifications. Typical parts treated include contacts and crimp tubes, with acceptable part sizes up to 12" in width.

A full range of testing and inspections are carried out to ensure accuracy and integrity, and rigorous quality controls are in place including statistical process control and customized web based tracking. All processing are carried out at our newly expanded state of the art facility, and uphold the highest industry standards. Our heat treating and annealing processes ensure improved overall performance, enhanced long term durability, and improved machining properties of high performance components. For more information about heat treating, annealing, thermal stress relieving services or the other capabilities available please see the table below or contact us directly.
