Austemper Heat Treatment
Master is one of the few custom stamping manufacturers with heat treatment capabilities in house. As a result, we control everything from quality to lead time making certain only quality conforming parts are produced and delivered on time.
With over 35 years of Austemper heat treating experience, a convenient Midwestern location, quick turnaround and certified quality and environmental systems, Master clearly has the advantage.
We are also one of the few captive heat treat operations that accepts outside work, meaning we can heat treat your existing steel parts. The same quality, delivery and cost effective advantages apply to your heat treating needs. Contact us for details.

Heat Treating Advantages
Allows for use of thinner (and therefore less costly) steel thickness without loss of strength. Parts bend and then “spring back” to their original shape.
Reduced distortion as parts retain more of their original shape, provides higher ductility (much less brittle), produces superior microstructures, reduces the possibility of hydrogen embrittlement caused by supplemental finishes such as electroplating or acid cleaning.
