Gleason Cutting Tools Purchases Two TurboTreaters
July 26, 2012
Ipsen shipped two 6-bar TurboTreaters® to Gleason Cutting Tools Corp. of Loves Park, Ill. The units, utilizing a 2-inch-thick carbon composite/graphite felt hot zone, are designed for a maximum operating temperature of 2500ºF and are capable of quenching in nitrogen up to 6-bar absolute pressure. The hardening and tempering furnaces were purchased without a diffusion pump and will use convection-assisted heating to 1600ºF, which significantly reduces cycle times. They come equipped with an industrial VPN router for remote diagnostics.
