SECO/WARWICK received an order for a controlled-atmosphere brazing (CAB) system from PWR Performance Products. The system will be installed in PWR’s C&R Racing facility in the U.S. for the production of high-performance aluminum heat exchangers. SECO/WARWICK will provide a complete CAB manufacturing cell that will include an inline dry-off oven and a radiation braze CAB furnace system equipped with patented Accubraze process control technology. Installation is scheduled for the third quarter of 2017. PWR purchased its first SECO/WARWICK brazing line 15 years ago for its facility in Australia.
In other news, SECO/WARWICK will supply a roller-hearth furnace line to BELAZ, a manufacturer of heavy-duty trucks based in Belarus. The line will be used for press hardening large-diameter bearing rings used in heavy-duty truck production. SECO/WARWICK will provide the technology for precision heat treatment of bearing rings based on a continuous production system. The furnace line will be delivered by the end of 2017. BELAZ manufactures one of the largest dump trucks in the world with a payload capacity of 450 tons.
