Low stress annealing – a special craft

The goal of low stress annealing is to reduce the interior stresses in the material. During this process the structure, tensile strength and/or hardness of the material hardly changes. The low stress annealing of steel is usually executed at a temperature between 500 and 650 degrees. In low stress annealing it is important that the warming up and cooling down process take place gradually, so that no new stresses are created due to temperature fluctuations.
