Class Information
Number: 148/627
Name: Metal treatment > Process of modifying or maintaining internal physical structure (i.e., microstructure) or chemical properties of metal, process of reactive coating of metal and process of chemical-heat removing (e.g., flame-cutting, etc.) or burning of metal > Heating or cooling of solid metal > Iron(fe) or iron base alloy > Treating with specified agent (e.g., heat exchange agent, protective agent, decarburizing agent, denitriding agent, etc.) or vacuum > With localized or zone heating or cooling
Description: Process wherein a heating or cooling operation is applied to a discontinuous area of the metal workpiece to provide treatment limited to one or several local areas or zones and not to other adjacent areas.
