German Heat Treater Orders New Vacuum Heat Treat Furnace

“Oetzbach Edelstahl, a commercial heat treating facility that has been providing metal heat treatment services for almost one hundred years, has purchased another furnace from SECO/WARWICK. The system on order is a Vector® vacuum furnace with 15 bar abs high-pressure gas hardening and the option of low-pressure carburizing, low-pressure nitriding and cryogenic freezing. It is the third SECO/WARWICK vacuum furnace to be delivered to the German Oetzbach Edelstahl plant.

The furnace ordered by Oetzbach Edelstahl is a standard medium-sized vacuum solution with numerous options. The Vector technology allows the user to produce a wide range of processes: from hardening through carburizing, nitriding, and cryogenic freezing. A vacuum furnace with a heating chamber size of 600x600x900 mm enables the efficient heat treatment of tool and machine parts. It is a proven design with a large number of options: FineCarb® vacuum carburizing, PreNitLPC® pre-carburizing prior to nitriding, LPN low-pressure nitriding and LPCN low-pressure carbonitriding.

“Vacuum furnaces of this type are very often chosen by service hardening plants because with relatively small dimensions, they provide a wide range of processes. We specialize in providing equipment for the specific needs of service hardening plants. We work for the largest companies in this industry. We are trusted by such highly regarded companies, including Härtewerk Chemnitz GmbH, the Slovenian MIHEU hardening plant, the Austrian R&W Härtetechnik, Aalberts Surface Technologies, Kuchma, and the Brazilian Tecnovacum,” – commented Maciej Korecki, Vice president of the SECO/WARWICK Vacuum Business Segment.”
