American Steel Treating has an experienced team
to successfully undertake any heat-treat challenge,
including duplicating processes, engineering new processes, equipment
removal, equipment restoration, and creation of new equipment.
The Heat-Treat Solutions Team has been working effectively for
our clients and has numerous case studies to illustrate their
track record of success. American Steel Treating is focused on
our core competence and is positioned to assume take-over processes
while saving our customers considerable capital investments.
Additionally, American Steel Treating has the floor
space and property to expand to any customer demand
with our inventory of equipment. The following are some example
case studies of the success of the Heat Treat Solutions Team:
• We have completed multiple take-over jobs
when customer furnaces failed or were being reconditioned.
• Our experienced team has managed transitions
for customers who did not see heat treating and related services
as part of their core competence, using American Steel Treating
as the outsource supplier of choice.
• One significant automotive company decided to outsource its heat-treat needs relative to specific engine parts.
The Heat-Treat Solutions Team removed furnaces within eight
months and currently does 100% of heat-treating of rocker arms
and roller followers for this major company.
• The largest supplier of truck clutch assemblies
decided to outsource its heat-treat needs and approved American Steel
Treating to assume their clutch plate heat treatment, vibratory
finish, and heat flattening processes.
• Another major automaker decided to outsource its transmission gear and shaft heat treatment processes.
American Steel Treating purchased a 210,000-square-foot plant
and installed quench pits. The Heat-Treat Solutions Team
moved multiple continuous pusher furnaces to the new plant and
installed all the complimenting processes within six months,
while maintaining full production throughout the entire process.
• The biggest off-road equipment supplier
is recognized as a leader in the heat-treat industry. They heard about the reputation
of American Steel Treating, and called when an emergency off load was
necessary. American Steel Treating exceeded expectations
when we insisted that we would meet their rigorous internal
process standards. American Steel Treating is one of very few companies that have obtained
their 1E4000 certification in North America. American Steel Treating continues to
process these parts for this market leader.
Having an internal Heat-Treat Solutions Team provides
American Steel Treating with a competitive advantage over any
other supplier. Our clients depend on us to provide them with
