AFC-Holcroft sold a stress-relief furnace to a major international supplier of vehicle powertrains. The equipment, a belt-type recirculating nitrogen-atmosphere stress-relief furnace, is designed to stress relieve engine components and can operate at 600°C (1112°F) with a temperature uniformity of better than +/-10°F. This new furnace is part of a complete line, which includes automatic loading and unloading, installed at a manufacturing facility in Turkey. Built by AFC-Holcroft’s manufacturing partner MATTSA in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, the equipment will be hot tested prior to dismantling for shipping. Installation is expected in the second quarter of 2015.
