Metals Engineering Processes Set the Stage for Consistent Large Weldments
GREEN BAY, Wisconsin – Metals Engineering, Inc., a commercial heat treater based in Green Bay, Wisconsin, performs a specialized role in industrial manufacturing processes with thermal stress relief that strengthens steel and iron components.
The company’s stress-relieving process reduces the level of residual stress by heating the material uniformly to a suitable temperature, and then slowly cooling it to minimize the development of new stress.
“Metals Engineering, Inc., a commercial heat treater based in Green Bay, Wisconsin, performs a specialized role in industrial manufacturing processes with thermal stress relief that strengthens steel and iron components.,” said Ted Kemen, owner and CEO of Metals Engineering. “This is a critical step in the production of large weldments and large iron castings.”
Metals Engineering’s ability to heat and cool materials at specific rates and within tight tolerances enables it to consistently deliver exceptional quality for customers in a wide range of industries.
Car bottom furnaces at Metals Engineering’s Green Bay and De Pere facilities feature automated ramp and hold rates to ensure precise heating. Load sizes can reach 60,000 pounds, with furnace sizes as large as 102 inches wide, 96 inches high and 228 inches long.
“These versatile industrial furnaces give our technicians the ability to program specific temperatures and heat times into the system, ensuring consistent performance for our customers,” Kemen said. “These furnaces perform the heavy lifting when it comes to thermal stress relief in our facilities. Our two plants provide the flexibility to offer some of the quickest turnaround times in the industry.”
