Heat Treatment News-Equipment Changes

Bati Heat Treat in Monterrey, Mexico just installed and commissioned a new gas nitrider from German furnace builder KGO this week. Bati is a commercial heat treater headquartered in Izmir, Turkey-the Mexico facility was inaugurated in 2018.  The company now has 5 of these systems, 4 in Turkey and this one in their Monterrey facility.

Bearing manufacturer and captive heat treater JTEKT in Bedford, Quebec recently found that they had surplus heat treating capacity and the end result was that they elected to sell off a batch IQ furnace. The 36 X 48 X 36″ furnace was originally built by Williams Industrial Services of Bowling Green, Ohio, USA (whose ad can be found on this page) back in 2005 but had never seen much used over the years. The furnace ended up at another Canadian company.

Mesh Belt Brazing Furnace Off to Bulgaria. For a number of reasons it is seldom that used furnaces make an ocean voyage, reasons such as different voltages and equipment certifications but it does happen from time to time. In this case this mint condition BTU mesh belt furnace started off in Wisconsin and is now on a ship to Bulgaria where the end user a jewelry company is anxiously awaiting it’s arrival.

Out in Washington state, USA we see that foundry and captive heat treater Seacast is expanding their heat treat department with a bottom load vacuum furnace. Seacast is a privately held company which offers high precision investment castings and the company has a long history of investing in their heat treating department.
