Heat Treat Services (HTS)

Hi-Life tools have been providing a heat treatment service for a wide range of Irish based tool making, engineering and medical device companies for more than 20 years.

The company has built up a vast amount of experience of heat treating a wide range of metals from tool steels, HSS, stainless steels and exotic metals. These can be treated using the standard processes or a bespoke process can be developed to suit the customer requirements.

The equipment list includes four vacuum furnaces of which two are validated for medical devices and eight tempering furnaces of which one is validated for medical devices and a cryogenic treatment unit with all the instruments on these furnaces calibrated twice annually and all processes logged on a chessell data logger to ensure that all processes are kept under the tightest control.

There is also a metallurgical laboratory on site where testing, analysis and advice on material condition can be provided on request.
