California Aerospace Company Replaces Vacuum Furnaces

California Aerospace Company Replaces Vacuum Furnaces

An aerospace company near Los Angeles, California recently replaced their older vacuum furnaces with brand new units and in the process sold the older furnaces to a used equipment dealer who has just put them on the market. They are going to have a limited market as they are relatively low temperature (1650-1700F) but for size they are extremely impressive. There are a total of 6 units and this shows the largest one a monster at 83” wide X 143” deep X 65” high. We can think of very, very few vacuums this size.

SECO/WARWICK Installs Vacuum Furnace in Japan

We have to hand it to SECO for selling a vacuum furnace into Japan-it is not an easy job. Japan in our opinion is the most close knit heat treating region in the world with Japanese heat treaters usually always buying from Japanese suppliers and only selling to Japanese customers. Having said that we will also say that heat treating in Japan is second to none. The attached photo shows a commercial heat treat shop we visited a few years back-a top notch operation.
