What Happens During The Annealing Process?

heat-forging

Annealing in metallurgy and material science is a heating treatment that modifies the physical and sometimes chemical properties of a material to increase its ductility and reduce its hardness. In the annealing process, atoms migrate in the crystal lattice and the number of dislocations decreases, leading to a change in ductility and hardness. This process … Read more What Happens During The Annealing Process?
