Belgium-based VCST Industrial Products purchased another AFC-Holcroft UBQ (universal batch quench) furnace for installation at its plant in Leon, Mexico. The gas-fired furnace has effective working dimensions of 36 x 48 x 36 inches and will be used to process various precision-machined gears for automotive and off-road powertrain applications. This furnace will be equipped with AFC-Holcroft’s new high/low endo gas-flow design, which reduces operating costs.

AFC-Holcroft partner MATTSA will be building the furnace and installing on site. This will be the fourth UBQ furnace AFC-Holcroft has supplied to VCST’s Leon facility.
