Aerospace Aluminum Heat Treating Processes

Heat treating is the process of using heat and cold to change the physical properties of metal and composite parts. Heat-treating equipment can enhance the component’s strength, ductility and fatigue life. These properties are important in the aerospace industry to ensure the components can withstand the harsh demands of their environment.  

The treatment is applied to metal parts to harden, soften or relieve stress without changing the shape. Heat treating aircraft equipment and systems can also improve machining, formability or restore ductility after a cold forming operation.

Within the aerospace industry, HeatTek’s application experience includes:

  • Aluminum heat treating
  • Aluminum aging
  • Solution heat treating
  • Titanium engine component heat treating
  • Chemical coating line dryers
  • Curing coatings
  • Paint curing
  • Finishing
  • Composite Curing
  • Sealants/coatings

Aerospace components that require heat treatment include engine components, structural hardware, door hinges, hydraulic fittings, landing gear, aircraft seat frames and much more.

In the aerospace industry, we have earned our reputation for high quality heat treat systems by delivering high performance, low maintenance systems, supported by superior customer service. Our engineers will work with you to design a custom system to meet your specific requirements, ensuring maximum performance and.
