What is heat treatment? This book describes heat treating technology in clear, concise, and nontheoretical language. It is an excellent introduction and guide for design and manufacturing engineers, technicians, students, and others who need to understand why heat treatment is specified and how different processes are used to obtain desired properties. The new Second Edition has been extensively updated and revised by Jon. L. Dossett, who has more than forty years of experience in theat treating operations and management. The update adds important information about new processes and process control techniques that have been developed or refined in recent years. Helpfull appendices have been added on decarburization of steels, boost/diffues cycles for carburizing, and process verification.

Heat Treatment

Master Control Manual

This indispensable manual focuses on heat-treating by ASM, SME, and AISI standards. It has been created for use in student education, as well as to guide professionals who have been heat treating their entire lives. Written without the typical metallurgical jargon, it will serve as a training manual from day one in learning how to heat treat a metal, and then also serve as a day-to-day reference for a lifetime.This manual zeros in on the popular tool steels, alloy steels, heat-treatable stainless steels, case hardening steels, and more. It deals with these metals with up-to-date usage and processing recipes.What is different with this manual from all the others is that it doesn't just deal with the heat-treatment process, it also covers the continuation of the hardening process with cryogenics. It is written to help those who may want a thorough understanding of what goes on in the process of heat-treating and how to do it better. It also shows how proper heat and cryogenic processing can save your company money through longer life tooling, decarb-free and stress relief, all while learning how to create a better, finer grain structure. This manual shows that hardness is only an indication of hardness, and that the real money savings is in the fine grained structure. Written for toolmakers, engineers, heat-treaters, procurement, management personnel, and anyone else who is involved in metals, this manual covers the complete range of thermally treated metals from 2400�F down to -320�F.

The techniques of depositing a thin metallic layer on an object for decoration, corrosion protection, electrical conductivity, wear resistance and so on have been known for many years but have been developed and improved to a remarkable extent in the second half of this century. This book sets out to discuss the principles and practice of those forms of plating most suited to the amateur and small workshop, using relatively simple and inexpensive equipment to produce results virtually undetectable from work carried out by major plating concerns.
