Types and mechanical properties of Heat Treating Fixtures

In order to meet the needs of the heat treatment process and its production implementation, and to ensure the quality and production safety of heat treatment, all tools, molds, measuring tools, fixtures, spreaders and station appliances and self-made accessories (such as Hole bolts, nuts used to protect the threads of parts, copper keys used for high-frequency induction heating, and various samples) are collectively referred to as heat treatment process equipment (referred to as Heat Treating Fixtures).
A complete Heat Treating Fixtures helps to ensure the quality of heat treatment, improve heat treatment productivity, reduce heat treatment deformation, reduce the labor intensity of operators, ensure safe production, maintain the integrity of parts, and improve economic benefits.

Heat Treating Fixtures is generally divided into three categories:
1. General Heat Treating Fixture: Tools that are usually used to implement various (or part) heat treatment processes, such as hook clamps, hanging baskets, trays, general spreaders, hangers, etc.
2. Dedicated Heat Treating Fixture: Tooling specially designed and manufactured for a certain part or process, such as a special inductor for high-frequency induction heating, a special fixture for tempering and a special quenching mold for a certain part, etc.
3. Standard Heat Treating Fixture: Tooling that has been standardized by enterprises, industries and departments. Some of the standard tools are special tools, some are general tools, and they are also commercially available tools, such as tools combined with standard parts (standard hooks).

Heat Treating Fixtures also has other classification methods, such as classification by process, use, characteristics, etc., which can be determined according to the specific conditions of each enterprise.

What are the mechanical properties of Heat Treating Fixtures:
The performance of metal materials is generally divided into two categories: process performance and use performance. The so-called process performance refers to the performance of metal materials under specified cold and heat treatment tooling conditions during the processing and manufacturing of mechanical parts.
The technological performance of metal materials determines its adaptability to processing and forming in the manufacturing process. Due to different processing conditions, the required process properties are also different, such as casting performance, weldability, forgeability, heat treatment performance, and workability. The so-called use performance refers to the performance of metal materials under the conditions of use of mechanical parts, including mechanical properties, physical properties, chemical properties, etc. The use performance of metal materials determines its use range and service life.
