Angstrom Precision Metals, Mentor, Ohio, USA
The Angstrom Precison Metals facility in Mentor, Ohio (a manufacturer of a wide variety of automotive components) recently closed throwing all of their equipment on to the used market. This includes quite a bit of machining equipment along with a very sizable heat treat department. The heat treat department consists of a total of 7 Surface Combustion batch IQ furnaces which should get a lot of heat treaters rather excited at the prospect of some good bargains. However these are pretty tired, worn out furnaces with very small capacities. Our prediction is that some of the equipment will sell for bargain basement prices, the rest will be scrapped which is always a shame but we know from experience that that there is very limited market for these older, smaller furnaces.
