Aircraft Engine Manufacturer Invests in New Vacuum Furnace

“Given ongoing dynamic market developments, TEI – one of the largest Turkish manufacturers of aircraft engines – purchased a two-chamber CaseMaster EvolutionR furnace from SECO/WARWICK, featuring a unique system for temperature measurement within the charge.

The CaseMaster Evolution on order is a two-chamber vacuum furnace with an oil quenching system. The furnace offers a working dimension of 900x900x1200 mm and can process charges up to 1000 kg. The device will be equipped with a high vacuum system and a system for measuring temperature within the charge when heating and cooling. It will be used for the heat treatment of parts for aircraft engines.

“The equipment stands out, not only for its two-chamber design but primarily due to the critical improvement in the quality of the process, cost efficiency, increased performance, and better production flexibility. It is one of the most popular metal-treatment furnaces in the aerospace industry.

Undoubtedly this will be one of only a few multi-chamber vacuum furnaces worldwide fitted with a proprietary SECO/WARWICK system to measure temperature within the charge. Implementation of this innovation brings us superior heat treatment precision. This parameter is the most important one for the aerospace industry,” – said Maciej Korecki, VP, Vacuum Business Segment, SECO/WARWICK.

“TEI is one of our long-term Turkish business partners. Although we have been cooperating for many years, this is the first delivery of a multi-chamber vacuum system for them” – M. Korecki added.”
