Introduction to COLDfire
Strengthens Manufacturing Tools and Products
Lower Repair Costs
The cost of the
Thermal Cycling Process is very small compared to the amount you will save.
Parts and repair costs can eat up your profit. By Thermal Cycling your tooling,
dies, bearings, electric motors and cutting blades you will dramatically lower
your biggest expense.
work life of parts & tools results in substantial savings.
residual stress improves dimensional control in aluminum, titanium, and
alloy steel cutting tools stay sharp longer, fewer micro cracks, less
times reduced due to fewer service needs for parts & tools.
Cycling is not just a surface treatment, it's effects are seen through the
entire cross section.
Cycling treatment is a one time treatment, and the benefits obtained are
is compatible with tool, or component treatments (Tin, Chrome, Teflon, etc.)
Cycling Treatment can be carried out on new as well as used tools
Cycling does not cause dimensional changes.
Dramatically reduce consumption of
perishable tooling. Treated tools typically yield two to five times the
production of non-treated tools before regrinding is required.
COLDfire treatment will result in
the permanent volumetric enhancement of metal properties. Treated components may
be ground after treatment and the benefits of treatment are retained.
Reduce the frequency and cost of
tool regrinding. Worn treated tools may be reground more times before falling
below minimum acceptable dimensions. This represents yet an additional cost
Substantially reduce machine
downtime attributable to tool replacement.
Reduce the scrap rate for machined
forgings and castings by COLDfire treating prior to final machining for
better stability and surface finish
Gains For All Types Of Tooling Metals
- Carbide Cutters
- Chain Saws

- Twist Drills
- Welding Electrodes
the difference with COLDfire Thermal Cycling.
If tools are to be used to
their maximum life,
the treatment of choice must be Thermal Cycling.
