Only the vacuum heat treating process can produce the critical temperature uniformity and the vital heating and cooling rates by thermocoupling parts in direct contact with the metal. The vacuum heat treating process has the ability to attain vacuum levels of 1x10-6 Torr which is necessary to produce the clean oxide free results. These critical thermal and atmospheric conditions only aid in producing strong, ductile and crack-free metallurgical results that are paramount with new metallurgy of 3D metal printing.
