In order to make metal workpieces have the required mechanical properties, physical properties and chemical properties, in addition to the reasonable selection of materials and various forming processes, heat treatment processes are often indispensable. The metal heat treatment process is one of the important processes in mechanical manufacturing, and its function is to improve the intrinsic quality of the workpiece. Heat treatment imparts or improves the performance of the workpiece by changing the microstructure inside the workpiece, or changing the chemical composition on the surface of the workpiece, and generally does not change the shape and overall chemical composition of the workpiece. Treatment process: generally includes three stages of heating, heat preservation, and cooling, and the processes are connected to each other without interruption. The heating temperature is one of the important processes of the heat treatment process. Selecting and controlling the heating temperature is the key to ensuring the quality of heat treatment. The heating temperature is selected according to the metal material to be processed and the purpose of the heat treatment, and it is generally above the phase transition temperature to obtain the desired structure. It takes a certain period of time for the transformation of the structure. Therefore, when the surface of the metal workpiece reaches the required heating temperature, it must be maintained at this temperature for a certain period of time to make the internal and external temperatures consistent to ensure the complete transformation of the organization. This period of time is called the holding time. When high-energy density heating and surface heat treatment are used, the holding time is generally not required or the holding time is very short, and the holding time of chemical heat treatment is often longer. Cooling is an indispensable step in the heat treatment process. The cooling method differs depending on the process, mainly to control the cooling rate. The cooling rate of annealing is very slow, the cooling rate of normalizing is faster, and the cooling rate of quenching is faster. There are also different requirements for the cooling rate due to different steel types. For example, air-hardened steel can be hardened with the normalizing cooling rate.
