Annealing 12L14 Steel
April 10, 2015
Q. Hi, My name is Tom
Machinist - Derry, NH USA
I am a machinist, and I own my own company
I make parts out of 12L14 steel and the company wants them annealed at 1550-1600 °F for 2 hours in a protective atmosphere, slow furnace cool to 400 °F.
I send them out now but they always come back with some of them damaged.
I can buy the oven to do it but I need to know how to do it.
Can you help?
