Whirltronics Inc. specializes in advanced heat treating of medium- to high-carbon steels. Our austempering systems and metallurgy laboratory offer the latest in heat-treating technology. We have the capability, knowledge and expertise to austemper both small and large parts. Our in-house metallurgy lab experts can test, identify and solve issues quickly for faster manufacturing of higher quality products.

Austempering is the isothermal heat treatment that, when applied to ferrous metals, will produce a stronger, tougher structure than structures obtained from other conventional heat-treat processes.

Austemper Heat Treating Features:

  • Each of our three fully automated austemper lines processes 2000 lbs per hour
  • Computer controlled cycle and transfer times ensure consistent quality
  • In-house metallurgy lab tests, identifies and solves issues quickly
