Powdered Metal Company Quickly Sells Off Heat Treat Department
August 22/2022 we had the news item below about powdered metal company “Metal Ceramics Company” in the USA selling off their assets, assets which included the entire heat treat department. Surprisingly enough the entire heat treatment department was sold off prior to the actual auction. This included (3) Belt Sintering Furnaces (2, 12” Sinterite and 1 18” Abbott), a Saergent and Wilbur Ammonia Dissociator and a Leeds and Northrup Steam Treat Furnace.
AUGUST 22, 2022; Powdered Metal Company Sending Sintering Furnaces to Auction; All of the equipment at what was formerly “Metal Ceramics Company” of Bensenville, Illinois, USA will shortly be going to auction-this includes the entire heat treating department. In addition to the continuous furnaces the auction will also include machinery, customer lists and intellectual property. The auction will be held September 21. 2022 and amongst the heat treating equipment included is aa Abbott 18″ Electric Furnace (converted from gas), a Sinterite 12” belt sintering furnace and a pusher line. Metal Ceramics Company was founded in 1951 and offered powdered metal parts to a variety of industries including the automotive industry. “The Monty Heat Treat News” would expect to see some interest in the furnaces but not a lot considering the age and condition.
