Carbon steel plates being normalized in Furnace #1
Carbon steel plates are normalized in order to improve their machinability, refine grain structure and reduce residual stress in the metal. We are in a unique
position to assist steel mills, foundries and metal distribution centers with our extremely large processing capacity.
Aberfoyle can accommodate loads from a few hundred pounds in our smaller furnaces to over 200 tons. Normalized steel is crucial for use in products which will be
subjected to severe cold-weather use, such as machinery destined for mining in the far north.
Outside of steel mills, Aberfoyle Metal Treaters is one of the few firms able to handle the heat treating of very large volumes of bars, plates or forgings. We
can help solve bottlenecks in your production by offering full-service, large-scale heat treating capacity.
