Simulate heat treatment

Why does it make sense to simulate the heat treatment?

The heat treatment simulation is primarily about the Prediction of material properties (English: Prediction of Mamaterial P.roperties = PreMaP) obtained by the heat treatment. In addition, however, the prediction of the heat treatment accompanying delays be of interest.

Becomes a high alloy Tool steel incorrectly heat treated, he can poorer technological properties than a low alloy steel that has been properly heat treated. A high-quality, correctly heat-treated tool steel, on the other hand, will always have better properties for the respective application. Around high quality products to produce is one efficient control this energy-intensive processes necessary. This includes the sensible use of control / regulating elements, burner technology and a coordinated combination of different refractory products (such as lightweight refractory bricks and high-temperature wool).

Heat treatment is an energy-intensive process; Therefore, simulation-based process optimization can be used by all companies that use heat treatment as a sub-process in production great savings potential open up. This is particularly true for contract hardeners who have specialized as service providers in heat treatment technology.

The process simulation reduces the experimental effort in process design and optimization. Fewer prototypes are required for tests, and the costly, destructive testing of materials and the creation of micrographs are no longer necessary. Typical heat treatment errors, such as excessive or insufficient hardening, risk of cracks due to the resulting internal stresses or excessive distortion, are recognized with the process simulation before they are made.
