300 Below’s cryogenic tempering process helps to improve aviation components yielding greater strength and stability during flight related aerospace applications.
Residual stresses in components used in aviation are significant due to substantial machining needed to remove mass from the component. Residual stresses may also be caused by machining from end mills, taps, reamers, bores, broaching, and drilling operations. These residual stresses are varied and include three primary types of stress: compressive stress, tensile stress, and hoop stress.
