American Metal Treating (AMT), located in High Point, North Carolina,
was established in 1976. The company's goal then was to serve as
a premium metallurgical processing supplier of high-value, high-quality
products. The company still aspires to that goal. AMT is a family-owned
enterprise, and its management team includes Michael W. Ramm, president;
Carlton Ramm, senior vice-president; and Brant Ramm, vice president.
AMT offers a wide range of metal treating possibilities. The company
began using 5-Bar vacuum technology in 1987, which made it a pioneer
in the field of high-pressure quench vacuum processing. American
Metal Treating has continued to be a leader in vacuum processing
by adding two 6-Bar interruptible quench vacuum furnaces to its
existing 5-Bar equipment. Its unique Ipsen International "Turbo
Treater" vacuum furnaces incorporate extremely fast initial
quench rates with arrested cooling options.
The company produces desired hardness requirements on a wide variety
of steels, including hard-to-handle grades such as the Vanadis Series,
CPM15V, CPM10V, T15 and H13, while minimizing heat treat distortion.
This is of particular appeal to a discerning clientele throughout
the USA in diverse markets such as tool, die and mold makers; the
aerospace industry; firearms manufacturers; nuclear industry; military
contractors, and many others.
American Metal Treating offers several heat treating services including
5-Bar and 6-Bar vacuum furnace annealing, stress relieving, and
step-quench hardening; integral quench furnace carburizing, carbonitriding,
neutral hardening; fluidized bed nitriding and Nitro-Wear
ferritic nitrocarburizing; salt bath martempering and austempering;
precipitation hardening, all conditions; aluminum annealing, aging
and over-aging; induction hardening and tempering; bright annealing,
