J.L. Becker, a Gasbarre Furnace Group company, recently shipped a car-bottom furnace to a large Midwestern aerospace company. The furnace is designed for a proprietary coating process and is equipped with a 4.5-foot x 8-foot x 4-foot work zone capable of handling an 8,000-pound load with a maximum operating temperature of 1900°F (1038°C). Process capabilities include stress relief, hardening, tempering and preheating. The furnace was custom-designed for specific customer needs.
