Cutting, machining, and plastic deformation often cause stresses to build up in a product. Without further treatment then these stresses can cause the part could suffer dimensional changes.
Stress Relieving needs to take place before final finishing on the majority of materials following any sustained machining or cutting to ensure the article retains its correct shape and dimensions.
All of our stress relieving is carried in our computer-controlled oven that provides a printable data log which is subsequently used in our certification process. As with our bending process, the stress relief service can be used for normal product manufacture but also as a stand alone service to our customers.
The heating capability of our oven is up to 800 degrees Celsius and taking a 4 tonne weight capacity together with a capacity size of 4.3m x 2.4m x 1.8m high.
