Commercial Heat Treater Takes Delivery of 1st of 3 New Vacuum Furnaces
In the UK, Wallwork Heat Treatment one of the largest commercial heat treaters in the country has just taken delivery of a new vacuum furnace, the first of 3 to be exact. The furnace was provided by Rubig of Austria and it just arrived at one of Wallwork’s UK facilities earlier this week, with the other two due before the end of the year. “The Monty Heat Treat News” has been fortunate enough to be able to visit Wallwork several times over the year, most recently in October of 2021 when we provided this summary of the company;
“OCTOBER 2021; Wallwork Group, Bury, UK; Very recently “The Monty Heat Treat News” was fortunate enough to be able to visit commercial heat treater Wallwork in Bury, UK a trip which we last made in 2013. https://www.wallworkht.co.uk/ has a number of locations not all involved in heat treating, our interest of course lies in the commercial heat treat facilities of which the facility in Bury, UK is the headquarters. If any commercial heat treat facility can be considered full service it would be this one. During out tour we saw salt, sealed quench furnaces, nitriding, aluminum drop bottom ovens, Induction, vacuum and vacuum carburizing. What was of most interest to us was the changes and investments in the past 8 years. While they were impressive and numerous the most obvious examples were in the vacuum department with some new additions, the most recent one being a vacuum carburizing system.”
