DCT significantly increases the durability of tools and parts, generating dramatic longevity. Unlike coatings, DCT is a one time, through treatment. The cutting edges of DCT processed parts stay sharper longer with less wear and breakage. This directly translates to less down-time for tooling change-outs, creating increased throughput and more efficient use of labor. Most importantly, it means less tooling to buy!
Ever wonder why certain racing teams have better luck than others? Successful racing teams are not going to give away their "secret recipes". DCT has shown to improve performance (2-6% improvement in horsepower), reduce wear and breakage for high performance engines. If you are looking for that competitive edge or simply want your parts to last longer DCT can help.
DCT treated brake rotors have an increased net gain of 250 - 400% over untreated rotors! Imagine the cost savings to your business!
All firearms are produced with internal stresses. As the metal is bored, reamed and machined, mechanical stresses are created. As forgings and castings cool, the differing rates of temperature change introduce residual stresses. Heat treating leaves thermal stresses behind.. Careful manufacturing, provides barrels that shoot well…stresses and all. However, DCT can improve a quality barrels even further by relieving the internal stresses. Shotgun manufacturers have started to incorporated cryo treatment in their manufacturing processes (Benelli).
There are numerous metal parts and tooling that will benefit from DCT:
Drill Bits, Punches, End Mills, Shear Blades, Reamers, Dies, Gear Hobs, Broaches, Hammermills, Slicers, Slitters, Extruders, Gun Drills, Taps, Gears, Shafts, Muller Parts, Granulator Blades, Mud Pump Blocks, Packer Slips, Yoke Components, Oil Field Drill Bits, Bushings, Bearings, Engine Block, Valves, Cylinder Head, Pistons, Crankshaft, Connecting Rods, Camshaft, Transmissions, Axles, Brakes Rotors, Brake Drums, Propellers, Razor Blades, Copper Electrodes, Knives, Saw Blades, Musical Instruments, Sporting Goods, Firearm Barrels and much more!
