Dynamic graphic displays of the CompuVac 2000 workstation are easy to understand and allow a furnace operator to easily navigate through the entire furnace operation.
Vacuum heat treating and other heat treating processes as well require tighter process control to reduce operating costs and meet increasing customer demand for higher quality products. An advanced thermal process control and monitoring PC workstation (CompuVac 2000) not only offers an easy-to-use, reliable, and flexible system that provides critical furnace data in real time, but also provides the ability to archive acquired process data for later retrieval and evaluation. In addition, the system functions as a remote workstation, affording full protection against damage to a valuable furnace workload and potentially costly downtime. The workstation is available with new VFS vacuum furnaces, and also is available as a replacement for obsolete control systems of existing vacuum furnaces (figure 1).
