Expansion of Capacity at Hauck Heat Treatment Ltd.
“Hauck Heat Treatment has added further Vacuum heat treatment capacity to its range of Aerospace furnaces at the Letchworth site in Hertfordshire, UK. The high vacuum, high pressure quench furnace increases the total capacity offered on site at >30% by volume and >35% by weight and also increases the previous maximum working dimensions to directly support some specific Aerospace projects. Additionally, growth in the on-site hot isostatic presses (HIP) due to the high demand from additive layer manufacturing (ALM) parts means that faster throughput can be achieved. This will be of particular interest to “fast make” services where a speedy and flexible HIP & Heat Treat in one location creates many saved hours of advantage for the customer.”
