Heat treating increasingly integrated into production lines

Companiesandmarkets : 03 September, 2013  (Special Report)
The use of heat treatment processes helps organisations to improve the structural accuracy of a metallic product by enhancing its tensile strength and yield strength. The heat treating market has been forecast to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.27% through to 2016, driven by the need to develop superior-quality products, and the integration of heat treatment in production lines.
 
In order to develop high-precision products, several companies across industries such as automotive, aerospace, and general machinery opt for heat treatment processes. As a result of increasing globalisation, several companies across industries such as automotive, aerospace, and rail are becoming highly competitive. To increase their operational efficiency, several organisations are streamlining their operational processes.
 
In addition, to develop cost-effective, quality products that are competitive in the international markets, companies are now automating their factory operations for improved business operation. As an operational strategy, companies are integrating heat treatment processes with the production lines. This increases the operational efficiency of manufacturing organisations.
 
One of the main challenges facing the market is the requirement of high initial investment. The success of any organisation depends on its competitiveness and overall operational performance. The total cost of heat treatment processes is one of the major factors contributing to the profitability and competitiveness of any manufacturing organisation across industries.
 
Key players currently dominating the heat treating market include Bodycote, Bluewater Thermal Solutions, DOWA Group, and VAC AERO International. Bodycote is easily the largest provider of thermal processing services in the world, operating from more than 190 locations in all the major manufacturing regions of the world, from California to Japan and from Brazil to Finland.
