Stress Relief

Parts which have been heavily formed, machined, cut or are fabricated by welding, have high internal stresses. The part or assembly can be made stress free by heating to a certain temperature, where the stresses will be removed by thermal relaxation, without affecting the mechanical properties of the part. The resultant part will be far less prone to warp change dimensions, during further processing or use.

Thermal stress relieving can be performed on various materials, including plastics, aluminiums, steels and alloys.
