Annealing - purpose: to transform tissue and soften materials

Annealing: a metal heat treatment process in which the metal is slowly heated to a certain temperature for sufficient time and then cooled at an appropriate rate (usually slow, sometimes controlled).The aim is to soften the material or workpiece after casting, forging, welding or cutting, improve plasticity and toughness, homogenize the chemical composition, remove the residual stress, or obtain the desired physical properties.The annealing process varies with different purposes, such as recrystallization annealing, isothermal annealing, homogenization annealing, spheroidization annealing, stress removal annealing, recrystallization annealing, stabilization annealing, magnetic annealing, etc.
