Vacuum heat treatment plays a vital role in the aerospace sector as it offers customized solutions for treating various components in aircraft parts. Any deformation in the structural design of the aircraft can lead to major accidents. Therefore, to prevent this, the aerospace sector integrates vacuum heat treatment technology along with their production lines for improving the mechanical properties of materials, such as steel and other alloys, used for manufacturing specific aircraft parts.

According to Anju Ajay Kumar, a lead unit operations research analyst from Technavio, “The growth in the aerospace sector is expected to propel the demand for vacuum heat treatment in the coming years. Governments and private companies of several developed and developing countries, such as India, China, Japan, the US, Canada, Germany, the UK, and France, have been heavily investing in the aerospace industry.”


The materials used for automotive components are mostly made of steel and other alloys. Automotive parts, such as gears, engine valves, exhaust valves, camshaft, and door lock strikers, are made using vacuum heat treated metals. Vacuum heat treating processes include annealing, hardening, and quenching.

“Vacuum heat treatment of metals helps in increasing the hardness, yield strength, and tensile strength of metals. Therefore, the growth in the automotive sector will drive the demand for vacuum heat treatment in the next five years. Growing investments in automotive production plants imply the growing demand for vehicles. The US is witnessing significant growth in its automotive sector,” adds Anju.


Several manufacturers use vacuum heat treatment processes to enhance the mechanical and metallurgical properties of various metals and alloys that are used for specific manufacturing purposes. Industries utilize machine tools, metal cutting machines, and metal forming machines for manufacturing the required products.

With the help of vacuum heat treatment, manufacturers can deliver superior quality and reliable machines to customers. The machine tool is used for developing products with enhanced/desired dimensional accuracy. These tools find various applications in heat treatment processes.
