Mastering the austempering method
Specially built furnaces with computer-controlled feeding mechanisms heat the parts to their proper temperature. Rotor Clip has mastered the austempering method whereby parts cool as they pass through a quenching tank and undergo an isothermal transformation at a predetermined temperature and time. This step gives the parts the hardness, structural stability and mechanical properties that make reliable fasteners.
Heat treatment is an integral step in Rotor Clip’s manufacturing process to ensure high-quality, reliable products. Every year, Rotor Clip satisfies the Automotive Industry Action Group’s CQI⁹ Heat Treatment Assessment, which shows that its heat treatment process continuously improves, prevents defects and reduces variation and waste in the supply chain. Rotor Clip’s heat treatment process is integral to producing high-quality, reliable products.
