Bodycote held a ground-breaking ceremony for new aluminum solution-treatment capability at its Westminster, Calif., location. With this new capability, Bodycote will be able to process aluminum alloys up to 21 feet in length at 1100°F, with the ability to use multiple types of quench media. This new furnace, which is scheduled to be in service by the end of the third quarter this year, will allow the treatment of large aerospace and commercial forgings up to 20,000 pounds. Bodycote continues to invest in regional aerospace manufacturing markets across the U.S. in support of aerospace prime manufacturers and their supply chains.
