Vacuum Heat Treating

In-House Vacuum Heat Treatment Shortens Part Development and Production Times 

Parts made by hydroforming, block forming, fluid cell forming, or deep draw stamping often require vacuum heat treatment as an interim or final process.  At Jones Metal Products we offer in-house vacuum heat treatment services to help shorten development and production times.  Our vacuum heat treatment unit is available 24/7 to treat parts formed from steel, exotic metals, and ferrous alloys.

Parts are sent to the vacuum furnaces for annealing, hardening, solution treating, stress relieving and tempering.  The vacuum process burns off a fine layer of surface material so that parts are not discolored or contaminated by oxidation.  This is important in meeting specifications for bright surface finishes, minimal distortion, and uniform thermal treatment. 

A Commitment to Quality Vacuum Heat Treatment Services

Accreditation:  NADCAP approval, ISO 9001:2008 (without design), AS( 100:2009 certification and ITAR registration. The unit is also recognized by the Federal Aviation Authority for following the protocols of the Drug and Alcohol Misuse Prevention Program.

Customer Approvals: customer approvals for vacuum heat treatment include Rolls Royce (certification) Arde, Berkshire, Barnes, Goodrich, Honeywell Grimes, and Doncaster (Meco and GCE)
