Heat treatment of power-train, structural and chassis parts
- Solution heat treatment
- Air quenching
- Artificial ageing
Hanomag Aluminium Solutions offers heat treatments for T5 and T6 tempers. The T5 heat treatment is used to stress relieve crankcase components whereas the two-stage T6 treatment is used to increase mechanical strength or improve crash capability (increased ductility). Checks using tensile testing are carried out continually in the company’s in-house laboratory to ensure the required mechanical properties are obtained.
