heat treatment

additive manufacturing needs heat treatment

Heat treatment is an essential post processing step for additive manufactured parts. Residual stresses, surface hardness, microstructures and other properties of the different alloys need to be in accordance with the requirements of the final product. 

Our sister company, Hauck Heat Treatment, operates processing facilities in strategic locations around Europe, enabling us to offer all types of heat treatment processes. Our facilities are closely interlinked in terms of logistics, which means that all processes are available to you even if the specific process you seek is not available at the nearest Hauck Heat Treatment location.

We have divided our processes into five core technologies, which are listed below. Selecting a process leads to a description.


thermal processes

thermochemical processes

hot isostatic pressing

thin layer processes
