Mercedes Heat Treatment Department Flooded

Last week we had some shocking videos of an in house heat treat department being flooded (the videos can be found further down this page). We were reluctant to provide the name of the company, however it appears that the company itself announced the disaster. It is none other than auto maker Mercedes, and the plant is their transmission components facility in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“Flooding of a Heat Treatment Department; Earlier this week we had some shocking video of a captive heat treating department flooding. We have decided not to release the name of the company but we will say it is the largest manufacturer of automotive transmission components in South America. The link below will take you to another video from the same department, in it we can see a number of pit nitriders being submerged. What a disaster and what a shame-this is (or was) an extremely impressive heat treat department.”
