Stress Relief and Weld Conditioning
 
1-800-Meta-Lax
"Reducing distortion and fatigue in metal components"

 

During Manufacturing (one or more times including)

  • before rough machining, milling, or grinding
  • before finish machining, milling, or grinding
  • before EDM or burning
  • before heat treating or hardening
  • before reinserting into service
  • periodically for preventative maintenance

Types of Components

  • plate
  • bar
  • weldment
  • casting
  • forging
  • extrusions

Styles of Components

  • fixtures and tooling
  • machine tools
  • molds
  • dies and inserts
  • engine and chassis
  • etc.

Materials that Respond to Meta-Lax Stress Relief

  • low and medium carbon hot rolled steel including 1020, A36, 1045, 1060
  • low and medium carbon steel alloys including 4620, 8620,
    4140, 4340, H13, P20
  • tool steel alloys including A2, D2, M1, M2, M3, M4, S7
  • high strength steel alloys including HY80, HY100
  • cast iron including gray, nodular, meehanite
  • aluminum alloys including 356, 2000ís, 5000ís, 6000ís, 7000ís
  • stainless steel alloys including 304, 316, 410, 416, 420, 17-4
  • exotic metals including gold, titanium, inconel, magnesium,
    monel, waspalloy, hastelloy
  • powdered metals including tungsten carbide, stellite

Poor Applications for Meta-Lax Stress Relief

  • cold rolled steel
  • burned edges
  • copper and high copper content alloys
  • metals where mechanical properties need to be altered
  • components where straightening from treatment is needed
