By tempering, we mean the heat treatment of plastics in order to achieve the following features:
- Reduction of internal stresses caused by extrusion or machining
- Crystallization enhancement for strength and chemical resistance
- Increase dimensional stability over a wide temperature range
The plastic semi-finished products used by us are tempered after extrusion by our suppliers. But that’s not enough in many cases. For certain materials and / or component geometries, it is often necessary to insert a tempering process after a rough pre-cutting and then to produce the final geometry in another cutting step. This procedure ensures the best possible dimensional accuracy. We use several tempering furnaces in different sizes and will advise you in the offer phase. Trust us and use our many years of experience in the machining of thermoplastics in this regard.
