Catom Core This RFQ was sourced on www.MFG.com in USA for Annealing CP-3F Annealing RFQ Job requires annealing of approx 300 small machined pieces(150 pairs) for the purposes of restoring magnetic properties to the part material, AISI 1008 Steel. Approximate weight of all parts is approx. 1 lb. While it is hoped the supplier can provide more information on an appropriate annealing process, we estimate it will require annealing at 1500F in a non-oxygen environment. Drawings of the pieces in question are attached.

Annealing: Annealing is a heat treating process used to soften metal. Softening metal changes its crystalline structure and improves metal's performance characteristics, such as ductility and finish. The annealing process requires that metal be heated to very high temperatures for a period of time. The temperature and time required depends on the carbon content of the metal.
