Auxiliary Processes

In addition to a full suite of heat treating processes, TMT performs many auxiliary processes in-house that can further improve your products after treatment, as well as ensure that they continue to meet and/or exceed quality standards. We also have strong relationships with outside partners for some of these processes that will help streamline your production process. Our goal, as always, is to improve the strength and quality of your products, giving them a competitive edge.

Hardness Testing

We have a variety of hardness testing capabilities to suit all sorts of materials. Our Macrohardness testing capabilities include Brinell (HBW), Rockwell A (HRA), Rockwell B (HRB), Rockwell C (HRC), Superficial Rockwell (HR15N and HR30N), and Leeb (HL), and our Microhardness testing abilities include Knoop (HK) and Vickers (HV). Learn more about our hardness testing capabilities here.

Metallurgical Inspection

We provide in house Metallurgical Inspection preparation and testing capabilities for a wide range of materials. Our equipment is capable of metallographic imaging up to 500x. Learn more here!

Mechanical Testing

Thermal Modification Technologies has strong relationships with multiple accredited local labs to coordinate Charpy impact, tensile, proof, and other vital mechanical testing. For more information, check out our page on mechanical testing here.


We offer straightening presses up to 100-ton force as well as clamp tempering capabilities to ensure your products’ dimensional accuracy after heat treating. Learn more about this service here.

Cryogenic Treatment

Along with our heat-treating processes, TMT possesses sub-zero capabilities for products requiring maximum transformation, hardness, or dimensional stability. Learn more about this service here.

Parts Cleaning

Thermal Modification Technologies provides quality steel shot and glass bead blasting capabilities to remove contaminants from the surface of parts without changing their dimensions. Learn more about these processes on our web page here.
