AFC-Holcroft received an order for a custom batch-furnace system from a leading Midwest manufacturer. The UBAB atmosphere box furnace will be designed for specific customer needs to support a lean, high-quality manufacturing process. The furnace system will be used for the processing of gears.

AFC-Holcroft also received an order for a belt-type, recirculating-atmosphere stress-relief furnace from a major supplier of automotive components. The furnace, which is a duplicate of a recent order by the same customer, will be installed at a facility in Mexico.
