VAC AERO International will complete installation and commissioning over the next few weeks of a large 2-bar external gas-quench horizontal vacuum furnace at an aerospace manufacturing facility in Mexico. The unit, which has a work area of 48 x 48 x 60 inches with a 4,000-pound gross loading capacity, is equipped with a Honeywell's HC900 computer control system. The customer chose VAC AERO because of its focus on the aerospace industry, from product design and on-site operator training through all stages of the furnace's life cycle, including preventive maintenance.
