Nutec Bickley has a high level of experience in heat treating furnaces and is an international leader in the design, manufacture and installation of innovative energy efficient heat treatment systems for the steel industry.
We have a wide experience supplying both continuous and batch heat treat furnaces/ovens, including austenitizing, tempering, annealing and stress relieving furnaces for the steel forging, casting and fabrication industries. Complete automatic handling systems can be included.
Nutec Bickley is renowned worldwide as a leading innovator and manufacturer of Austenitizing heat treating furnaces, available in custom designs and dimensions to match customer production and process requirements. This heat treatment process of steel and other ferrous alloys consists of heating materials above their critical temperatures long enough for transformations to take place. If an austenitized material is followed by a quenching process, then this material becomes hardened. Quenching is performed at a rate that is fast enough to transform the austenite into martensite.
Nutec Bickley is an industrial Quenching equipment manufacturer, among other products for the metals industry, in custom designs and dimensions to match customer production and process requirements. We can include high velocity agitation, heating and cooling options.
Nutec Bickley is renowned worldwide as a leading innovator and manufacturer of Tempering heat treating furnaces. Tempering is a heat treatment technique applied to ferrous alloys, such as steel or cast iron, to achieve greater toughness by decreasing the hardness of the alloy. Tempering is usually performed after quenching. Tempering is accomplished by controlled heating of the quenched work-piece to a temperature below its lower critical temperature.
Nutec Bickley is renowned worldwide as a leading innovator and manufacturer of Stress Relieve heat treating furnaces. Stress Relieving is the treatment of a metal or alloy by heating to a predetermined temperature below its lower transformation temperature followed by cooling in air. The primary purpose is to relieve stresses that have been absorbed by the metal from processes such as forming, straightening, machining, rolling or welding.
