Why annealing is done after cold working

Why annealing is done after cold working? – Importance of Stress-Relieve Annealing

Annealing is usually done after cold working to reduce internal stresses caused by plastic deformation. These stresses can make the material more prone to cracking during later processing or use, and are a major cause of material failure. Annealing is the process of making something softer or more flexible by heating it to a high …
