Applied Process has been a technology leader in the heat treating industry since 1978. AP specializes in the Austempering process - making iron and steel parts tougher, stronger, lighter, quieter, wear resistant...and greener. We get paid to heat treat customer parts, but what we really do for a living is help our customers to replace one material/process combination with a better, faster, cheaper one. Austempering is no ordinary heat treating procedure, and Applied Process has no ordinary people. Our team includes metallurgists, consulting metallurgists, mechanical engineers and a dedicated R&D staff.
