Tempering in the Midlands

The tempering process is no less important than the hardening process, and tempering occurs after a component piece of steel has been hardened. The main purpose of tempering steel is to increase and improve the steel's toughness and ductility, to get rid of brittleness and to relieve any internal stresses. Tempering improves the mechanical properties of the component piece of metal, reducing stresses caused by the previous heat treatment process without affecting the hardness.

Tempering reduces the possibility for distortion and cracking. If the tempering stage has been carried out correctly then there will only be a slight loss of hardness. All the benefits of tempering come together to ensure improvement in the machinability of the steel.
