Hanomag Heat Treatment-Top Ten Heat Treat Europe

The Monty Heat Treat News” was fortunate enough to be able to visit this week one of the 10 largest commercial heat treaters in Europe, Hanomag based in Hannover, Germany. https://themonty.com/project/largest-european-commercial-heat-treaters/

Our visit this week took us to the headquarters in Hannover, a sprawling facility with almost 200 employees in a single location, which features numerous types of furnaces. Perhaps the pusher furnaces dedicated to auto parts is the largest department in the plant, however it might also be the multiple pit carburizing furnaces used for large gears. Having said that the furnaces dedicated to aluminum components might also cover the largest area, and let us not forget the nitriding department.

The bottom line is that this is a mammoth very impressive heat treating location. This is one of 10 Hanomag facilities, all in Germany except for one in Poland largely for aluminum processing and one in Austria.  https://www.haertecenter.de/en/
