Heat Makes the Difference
The same piece of steel can be stiff and brittle, soft and malleable, tough and springy. Heat makes the difference. Precise heating, quenching and cooling changes the crystalline structure of metals, giving us control over their hardness, strength, ductility and elasticity. Heat treating is essential to creating springs, cutting edges and hardened components.
Our heat treating, annealing and quenching capabilities allow us to treat components with the precision you expect from the Smith & Wesson name.
