Heat Treatment

It goes without saying that our mills in Sweden are equipped with state-of-the-art heat treatment facilities. 

High quality heat treatment is a necessity to achieve the full potential of the tooling material.  It improves resistance against common failure mechanisms and increases overall performance.  For your benefit, we are committed to supporting you with the most appropriate heat treatment service.

Our tool steels are normally delivered in the soft annealed condition, thus making it easier for tool makers to machine and giving it a microstructure suitable for hardening. The tool steel can then easily be heat treated according to the tool user's specific needs.

Uddeholm can support you with heat treatment services such as:

  • Soft annealing
  • Stress relieving
  • Hardening and tempering
