German term or phrase: einformend
context: annealing of cold strip

Seit Beginn der KW 38/01 setzen wir neben unseren Haubenglühöfen einen Rollenherdofen ein, um das Kaltband einformend oder rekristallisierend zu glühen.

I know that recrystallization annealing is "an annealing process applied to cold-worked metal in order to obtain the nucleation and growth of new grains without a phase change."

What I don't know is whether the "oder" in the German sentence means that einformend is just another way of saying the same thing (which means I would only have to use one word in the English), or if I need two separate terms, one for einformend and one for rekristallisierend.

Can anyone explain what "einformendes Glühen" is?
Thanks in advance for any help.

A search on spheroidizing annealing yields some 230+ hits. And it does seem to be different from recrystallization annealing.

Annealing—Heating to and holding at a suitable temperature and then cooling at a suitable rate, for such purposes as reducing hardness, Improving machinability, facilitating cold working, producing a desired microstructure, or obtaining desired mechanical, physical, or other properties. When applicable, the following more specific terms should be used: Black Annealing, Blue Annealing, Box Annealing, Bright Annealing, Flame Annealing, Full Annealing, Graphitizing, Intermediate Annealing, Isothermal Annealing, Malleablizing, Process Annealing, Quench Annealing. Recrystallization Annealing, and Spheroidizing

Spheroidizing Annealing: Annealing process with the purpose of obtaining spheroidized carbides. Usually characterized by maintaining the material at a temperature slightly above or below point A1 or varying around point A1, and slow cooling. Also known as coalescing annealing. Used for products requiring a very low hardness so as to allow deep drawing operations.
