Introductory Remarks

The present material has been elaborated for the training in professions which, apart from knowledge in the field of metal working, require command of the usual heat treatment processes. The material includes the description of various heat treatment processes on principle and the necessary devices and auxiliary means with their specific features of application. All working steps have been described by the material group of plain carbon steels (tool steels); given temperature data are not applicable for alloy steels; with regard to that, tables elaborated by the steel manufacturer must be consulted.

In order to promote the learning process, control questions follow the individual sections, the trainees can check their knowledge by answering those questions.
