Check and Straightening

Solution heat-treatment of aluminum alloys often results in some distortion of the material. Astro has a 12,000 square foot work cell that offers a full range of check and straightening capabilities to return your material to it’s original form after the heat treat process is completed.  Many of our experienced technicians have been with Astro for over 25 years.
