Did you know…
Manufacturing processes such as heavy machining, electrical discharge machining (EDM), and welding are known to induce both thermal and mechanical stresses into metals. At AbsoluteWelding we are able to relieve the stresses that develop within a structure through stress relief heat treatment whereby stressed metal is uniformly heated to a predetermined temperature, held at that temperature for a set amount of time, then cooled slowly and uniformly to room temperature.

This procedure is to be completed at either the rough cut or semi-finished stage.
