If you are looking for aluminum components with low distortion and low residual stress, choose ALU heat treatments from RÜBIG. RÜBIG customers in the automotive and other industries benefit from short processing times at premium quality.
During heat treatments, a thermal impact is applied in order to positively affect the material characteristics of aluminum. The aluminum atoms are arranged in a crystal lattice and contain imperfections which increase the strength of the aluminum. The amount of the imperfections contained in the lattice is temperature-dependent. The higher the temperature increases, the more imperfections occur and the more moveable the atoms which start to move become. This is called diffusion and forms the foundation for all heat treatments. We offer different aluminium states such as T4, T5, T6, T7 with different quenching options (e.g. air quenching, polymer quenching, water quenching).
Detailed descriptions of our procedures are presented in our technical data sheets that are available for download.
