Hightemp Vac Aero Pvt. Ltd. recently commissioned its first vacuum furnace at the joint venture’s facility in Nelamangala near Bangalore, India. The furnace was built to the Vac Aero Model VAH 3436 HV-2 design with 2-bar pressure quench and high-vacuum capabilities. The unit was assembled in India with support from Vac Aero technicians in Canada. It is currently being used for production heat treating and brazing in commercial applications.

The Hightemp Vac Aero joint venture offers vacuum heat-treating and brazing services as well as the manufacture of vacuum furnaces for the Asian market. Additional vacuum processing capacity will be added in India as demand for services grows.
