Treatments for precision engineering

Treatments for precision mechanics are functional to considerably increase the technical characteristics of the treated material, such as hardness, tensile strength and stress resistance during the operation of mechanical devices.

For these reasons, the most commonly used treatments are of the protective type, chosen for versatility and strength (and to achieve high performance in controlling friction coefficients).

We speak, for example, of phosphating, a treatment by which, on suitably prepared ferrous material, the formation and growth of crystals consisting of zinc or manganese phosphate salts is triggered. Or zinc plating, used mainly for ferrous material, where zinc gives its cathodic/sacrificial protection effect.

In the machining section, also on our site, you can find out what other treatments are dedicated to precision engineering.
