Heat treatment of metallic materials

We provide furnaces that make heat treatments at different temperatures and athmospheres feasible. The table provides an overview about our furnaces including the maximum temperature, sample size as well as the attainable atmosphere (Mix can be anything within Ar/N2/O2).
