Cryogenic Treating

A&M Heat Treating Ltd is a leading provider of metal heat processing services for all types of metals and alloys to serve a wide variety of applications. Expect top-notch cryogenic treating of metallic work pieces to improve wear resistance and residual stresses. Such stresses are often left behind from decades of use causing electrical resistance, reduced coefficient of friction, bumps, cracks, scratches, and corrosion. Treatment of this type of damage is essential to maintain performance, toughness, conductivity, and to ensure a longer product service life.

Serving numerous applications and industries

Cryogenic treatment provided by A&M Heat Treating Ltd. is trusted in a wide variety of applications including automotive, aerospace, defense, metalworking, general industrial use, agriculture, transportation, energy, mining and more. Our service is most commonly used to effectively strengthen ferrous and non-ferrous metals and other materials such as plastics. Some of the most common parts that we treat with cryogenic methods are engine components, product tooling, and brake rotors.  The cryogenic process is considerably cooler and slower than other options for treatment that contrastingly require intensely hot temperatures. We start by cooling the metal to below -180 degrees Celcius, maintaining that temperature for several hours, and then reheating the surface to room temperature. The only downside intrinsic to the cryogenic process is the time required, but relatively minimal when considering the cost-saving benefits. A large plus to this treatment is that it affects all of the material, not only the surface that alone adds to the cost-efficiency of opting cryogenic.

Keeping up with the pace of innovation

Considering the length of the process, you can rest assured that our experts will keep the temperature controlled properly at every stage to prevent issues such as carbide formation that can occur if the temperature is turned back up too soon. Our goal is to exceed customer expectations by continuing to provide excellent treatment services to keep up with the newest innovative processing technologies. Our reputation as a leading service provider and heat treating expert is important to us to serve you better.
