One vacuum furnace serving just the orthopedic industry in northern Indiana. That’s how Applied Thermal Technologies got its start in 1992. Micky Bradican, a long-time heat-treat shop manager with a degree in metallurgy and decades of experience, opened the company after noticing a need for vacuum heat treating and brazing in the area.
Today, the Nadcap-accredited company specializes in bright vacuum heat treating and brazing of stainless steels and exotic alloys for the medical, aerospace, food and injection-molding industries across the country. It boasts nine vacuum furnaces with seven auxiliary ovens and deep freeze capabilities. Applied Thermal Technologies can process your aerospace heat treating to AMS 2759/1, AMS 2759/2, AMS 2759/3, AMS 2759/4, AMS 2759/5, AMS-H-81200, AMS 2801, AMS-H-6875 CL-A, AMS-H-6875 CL-B and AMS-H-6875 CL-C specifications. Some of its clients include Bell Helicopter and Rolls-Royce.
