Aerospace Equipment Manufacturer Orders Vacuum Furnace
SECO/VACUUM Technologies (SVT), a SECO/WARWICK Group division with headquarters in Meadville, Pa., will supply a dual-chamber vacuum oil-quench furnace to an aerospace equipment manufacturer. The company is bringing its low-pressure carburizing and hardening work in-house. The furnace uses one chamber for vacuum heat treatment and the second chamber for oil quenching.
In contrast to the aerospace supplier’s current procedure, the CaseMaster Evolution’s vacuum LPC heating and quench chambers produce uniform, bright and high-quality parts while using very low consumption of processing media at high speeds for an economical workflow. According to SECO/WARWICK, the furnace provides greater repeatability of workloads, with no CO/CO2 emissions, exhaust hoods or endothermic generators.
