SECO/VACUUM (SVT), a SECO/WARWICK company, sold a vacuum tempering furnace to a global manufacturer of cutting tools. The furnace, which will be used for tempering and stress relieving metal parts, is part of the company’s expansion and complements another vacuum tempering furnace commissioned earlier in 2019 at the facility. The horizontal, front-loading furnace has an all-metal hot zone for clean vacuum processing. It includes a convection fan and a pressurized gas quench for quick cooling.

The repeat order is a testament to the first furnace meeting all promised parameters. SVT provides consultation, project engineering, installation and aftermarket support from its Meadville, Pa., headquarters via the company’s SECO/VISORY team consulting service.
