A few team members traveled to San Leandro to visit Lee Edwards of Edwards Heat Treating Service to gain some knowledge on the heat treating process. Specifically, we were concerned with which material would be ideal for our needs, and exactly what process best fits our needs. As engineers, we are good at determining which material is best on paper, but talking with Edwards gave us great insight into real world answers to our questions.
Then once we were done with business, Edwards was kind enough to give us a tour of his shop. These electric, atmosphere-controlled furnaces were beautiful! This was definitely a highlight of our trip.
