European Fastener Manufacture Orders Vacuum Furnace

From furnace manufacturer SECO/WARWICK we have this press release;

“Solvera Gawel Technology S.A., a supplier of fasteners, chose SECO/WARWICK as their vacuum furnace supplier. The equipment on order is a VectorR vacuum furnace based upon their previous experience with SECO/WARWICK’s atmospheric furnaces. The new furnace will be used for vacuum heat treatment and high-pressure gas hardening of tools for fastener production. As a result, the company will significantly shorten the production process cycle for screws.

The ordered Vector vacuum furnace has a compact design, which makes it an ideal solution for manufacturing companies that need to create their own small in-house hardening plants. The heating chamber is equipped with a compact hot zone (400x400x600) that is large enough to enable efficient heat treatment of many elements at the same time. Solvera Gawel Technology selected this solution as an addition to their facility due to the Vector’s unique features including a round heating chamber with very good temperature distribution, an efficient and ergonomic pumping system, as well as the cooling system based on a gas blower ensuring a maximum hardening pressure of up to 15 bar abs.

“We are glad that SECO/WARWICK’s long-term partner has purchased a system from a different product and technology segment. Our proven vacuum device, the design of which ensures long-term and reliable operation in industrial operating conditions, will show the great advantage of this technology. The product advantage is the ability to carry out very efficient hardening processes thanks to the utilization of high -pressure cooling gas” – said Maciej Korecki, Vice President Vacuum Segment, of SECO/WARWICK Group.”
