Stress Relief

We meet all specifications throughout the entire project process, including thermal and vibratory stress relief of components. Internal stress relieving completed at Merrill Fabricators, reduces lead time and costs, meeting delivery requirements.


Our internal capabilities of thermal stress relief include heating parts up to 1300 degrees Fahrenheit for large fabrications, up to 30,000 pounds maximum load. With thermal stress relieving, we are able to achieve dimensional stability, lower hardness levels and improve machinability.


Merrill Fabricators can stress relieve projects ranging from 600 pounds to fabrications that are complex in shape and vast in weight. Through vibratory stress relief, we are able to effectively stress relieve stainless steel and other alloys, within a time frame of two to five hours without changing the molecular makeup.
