SECO/WARWICK Group, a worldwide industrial furnace and heat-treatment equipment supplier, and Expanite A/S, a technology company from Denmark, signed an agreement for SECO/WARWICK to be the exclusive supplier of advanced installation technology for the Expanite® and SuperExpanite® processes developed by Expanite A/S. Expanite and SuperExpanite are patented processes for the surface hardening of stainless steel to achieve superior surface and material properties, such as high hardness, and extraordinary corrosion and fatigue properties. The first installations will be at Expanite’s development and customer center in Denmark in the second quarter of 2012.            

SECO/WARWICK developed an advanced installation technology based on their long-standing experience and in cooperation with Expanite. The heat-treatment unit is designed for integration into the customer’s production lines even if the customer has limited heat-treating experience. The infrastructure requirements are relatively small. The companies are calling it a plug-and-play approach to heat- treatment technology.
