Aichelin Unitherm India, a joint-venture company of Aichelin Group and one of the leading manufacturers of heat-treatment furnaces in India, received an order from Hirschvogel Components India for a double-decker roller-hearth furnace line. It will be used for isothermal annealing, normalizing and stress relieving of cold-forged shafts and billets. The furnace line, which has a low-temperature furnace mounted as a double deck on a high-temperature furnace to utilize vertical space, has a maximum throughput of 1,800 kg/hour. The furnace line is fully automatic from loading until unloading of parts in the customer’s trays and will meet the requirements of CQI 9 and AMS 2750D. It is expected to start production by June.
