Auto Components Supplier Orders Vacuum Furnace-Compliments Recent New Tempering Furnaces

“A global supplier of auto components recently ordered a new 2 bar vacuum furnace from SECO/WARWICK-this same company recently ordered 6 new tempering furnace from SECO for its machine tool manufacturing facility.

The international buyer’s automotive division placed an order for a single chamber high pressure quench horizontal vacuum furnace to increase its annealing production of fuel injector components. The new heat treating furnace will complement an existing SECO/VACUUM furnace in operation at that location since 2002. Because the new furnace is a nearly identical model, they share standard components and will reduce the necessary inventory of spare parts.

SECO/VACUUM’s Managing Director, Peter Zawistowski, said: “Once again, we have been rewarded for a good track record of performance and service support by this international automotive and machine tool components manufacturer. This furnace brings to 7 the number of vacuum heat treating systems we will have delivered to them in the past 3 years. It proves the familiar adage, ‘If we take care of you, you will take care of us.’ It is also very gratifying to know that their 20-year old furnace is still performing well with our support.”

The new furnace will have a chamber size of 36” x 36” x 48” deep and a load capacity of 3,300 lb. It is designed for a temperature uniformity of +/-10°F to meet the qualifications of CQI-9 and AMS2750F. The furnace will be equipped with SECO/WARWICK’s state-of-the-art control system, which includes a PLC and SECO/VACUUM SCADA systems. A battery-operated electric loader will also be provided to allow safe and convenient loading/unloading operations.”
