Thermal Cycling Strengthens Manufacturing Tools and Products
- Longer Life
- Less Breakage
- Decreased Wear
- Lower Repair Costs
- Increased Durability
The cost of the Thermal Cycling
process is very small compared to the amount you will save. Parts
and repair costs can eat up your profit. By COLDfire
treating your tooling, dies, bearings, electric motors and cutting
blades you will dramatically lower your biggest expense.

cutting tools stay sharp longer, fewer micro cracks, less

consumption of perishable tooling. Treated tools typically yield
two to five times the production of non-treated tools before
regrinding is required.
treatment will result in the permanent volumetric enhancement of
metal properties. Treated components may be ground after treatment
and the benefits of treatment are retained.
Reduce the frequency

more times before falling below minimum acceptable dimensions.
This represents yet an additional cost savings.
