CEC to Provide Drop-Bottom Furnace
Consolidated Engineering Company (Kennesaw, Ga.) has been contracted to build and install a drop-bottom furnace for Quartz Mountain Aerospace, which plans on incorporating heat treating to its in-house manufacturing operations. The furnace will be designed to meet the updated AMS 2750D specification currently being used by NADCAP. Quartz Mountain Aerospace, the former Luscombe Aircraft Corp., began manufacturing a light aircraft designed for private use in March 2007.
The Model 11E is designed with a spring-steel tricycle landing gear and a 185-horsepower fuel-injected engine. Quartz Mountain’s 110,000-square-foot plant in Altus, Okla., is projected to produce 200 airplanes per year by 2009.
