High-level mechanical value performance for long life cycle

After forging and polishing, pieces are submitted one by one or in a batch, to temperature and medium changes (air, water, oil, polymer). Without changing the state (always solid), heating and cooling at controlled temperatures are applied to improve its physical and mechanical properties. With these properties, we mean toughness, strength, and elasticity.


During the production process of forged products, several treatments can take place. The most usual treatments are:

  • Quenched and tempered (QT)
  • Normalized (N)
  • Annealed (A)

Consequently, Irizar Forge is developing R&D projects related to material grades, properties and heat treatments, applying deep metallurgical expertise that is allowing leadership in our goal markets and industries.
