Heat/Thermal treating is a group of industrial and metalworking processes used to alter the physical properties of a material. Heat/Thermal treatment involves the use of heating or chilling, normally to extreme temperatures, to achieve a desired result such as hardening or softening of a material.

Heat/Thermal treatment techniques include annealing, normalizing, quenching and tempering and stress relieving. Annealing is the process of heating and then cooling metal to improve its formability and machineability. Normalizing is a heat treatment applied to steel to relieve internal stress, refine the grain size and improve the mechanical properties. Quenching is the rapid cooling from high temperatures by immersion in a liquid bath of oil or water. Stress relieving is the process of heating to a suitable temperature, holding long enough to reduce residual stresses, and then cooling slowly enough to minimize the development of new residual stresses.
