VAC AERO Receives Furnace Orders
VAC AERO’s North American furnace manufacturing operations have received furnace orders from five different customers. All the orders will be delivered within the next six months to various sites in the U.S., Canada and the Philippines. The contracts range from a laboratory furnace to a bottom-loading heat-treating and brazing furnace. Other orders include an ultra-high vacuum furnace and a high-pressure gas-quench furnace.

The laboratory furnace is for a medical devices manufacturer and is the 16th VAC AERO furnace built for that customer. An aerospace parts manufacturer ordered the bottom-loading heat-treating and brazing furnace, that customer’s fifth VAC AERO furnace. The high-pressure gas-quench furnace will be used for the hardening of low-alloy steel components.
