In the automotive industry, known as hihgly demanding, the highest quality and efficency in all processes is required.
Ovens and heat treatment technologies play an important role in different production stages.
Some of the main features that these technolgies must have are the meximisation of the final quality, speed, safety and energy efficiency. All these requirements lead to another feature that those material need: flexibility. This is beyond the technical features and requires an ownes manufacturer that understand perfectly the client’s needs.
There are three main classes of materials: metallic materials, composite materials and electronic materials.
Metallic materials are further divided in two classes: metals and ferrous alloys, metals and non ferrous alloys.
Heat treatment is importnat for the steel connecting rods: for example the two-strokes engines. In order to harden only the seat of the roller bearing, the rest of the connecting rod body must be protected with a copper plating.
The head, instead, is made of alluminium alloys. The most used is the G-AlSi9Mg.
This alloy must be heat treated to offer a percentage of allongation between 2 and 5%.
Regardless of the heat treatment, this aluminum alloy has a specific weight of 2,65Kg/dm3
As for the automotive sector, the company aims at effectively responding to all needs and all the problems related to the processes of preheating, drying, curing, polymerisation, coating gelification, resin fusion, adhesive drying and curing prior to coupling, and material pre-heating prior to thermoforming.
