Heat treatment up to 650 degrees Celsius: solution annealing, ageing, tempering, preheating
Our heat treatment systems are a safe solution for reliable process sequences in many metalworking processes. The following processes are classic applications for our heat treatment systems:
- Solution annealing and ageing of aluminium (T4-T7)
- Solution annealing and ageing of copper alloys (bronze and brass)
- Heat treatment of non-ferrous metals and alloys, e.g. magnesium, brass, copper, aluminium
- Tempering of steel during hardening
- Preheating before forming processes, e.g. flow forming or forging
- Use of the prepreg process as a tempering furnace
Furnace design according to your needs
With our various plant concepts, your individually tailored heat treatment plant can be optimally integrated into your working environment. We offer various plant concepts that can be individually adapted:
- Bell-type furnace systems
- Automated batch furnace systems
- Continuous furnace systems
- Rotary plate furnace systems, also multistage
Excellent at air quenching and water quenching
We offer both water quenching and air quenching, even in combination. Air quenching is gentler on the component than quenching with water. This minimises distortion of the component, especially with thin-walled parts (structural parts). Water quenching, on the other hand, is optimal for thick-walled and heavy components. Thanks to our process optimisation, the components are quenched effectively and yet gently.
Reduced space requirements, versatile handling
Space-optimised system concepts result in space savings at the installation site. The design of the plants is well thought-out for a wide variety of materials, such as aluminium, steel and brass. Parts-specific handling and transport systems are developed and implemented by us together with the customer. We have designed preheating and tempering furnaces in all sizes and load types. For heating, you have the choice between electricity, direct gas-fired, indirect gas-fired, thermal oil or oil-fired.
Fast heating, optimum temperature distribution in the process
The special features of REINHARDT ovens:
Our proven air guidance system ensures rapid heating. Our air guidance system guarantees high temperature accuracy in the heating and holding phases. The excellent temperature uniformity and heat transfer due to the optimal air guidance system enable the reduction of dwell times.
The following standards are fulfilled by our heat treatment systems:
- AIAG CQI-9
- AMS 2750
A high degree of automation through customer/product-specific handling solutions enables shorter cycle times and easy operation.
