2316 Steel Heat Treatment

1.Forging temperature is 105℃ – 850℃.
2.Annealing: Heat temperature is 750℃ – 800℃, keeps warm for 1h – 3h, then furnace cooling.
3.The temperature of first-time pre-heat for the quenching is 550℃ – 650℃. The second time is 800℃ – 850℃. Then raise it to 1020℃ – 1050℃. Using air cooling and oil quenching.
4.For the tempering, heating to 180℃ – 200℃, then air cooling.
5.Temperature is 200℃ – 600℃ for the second time of heating. But you need to choose the temperature according to the requests.
