SECO WARWICK Sells Vacuum Furnaces To Aerospace Customer
“SECO/WARWICK Group has sold 2 vacuum furnaces for an aerospace application to one client in two locations: the USA and Singapore. The Group has been delivering its products to this client for the last 10 years to such locations as Poland, Malaysia, Singapore, France and the US. Partnership and credibility built over a decade results in harmonic workflow among engineering teams regardless of the particular plant of the client, language and location. The manufacturer has been a SECO/WARWICK customer in Europe for many years, but this is their first Vector vacuum furnace ordered for a US installation.
The first furnace from this order will be used for the heat treatment of exotic electrical steels. The high-pressure gas quench vacuum furnace is a Vector with diffusion vacuum levels. Its horizontal chamber has a workload size of 24” x 24” x 36” and a 1300 lb. hearth capacity. The second furnace, also a single chamber Vector, will be used for annealing parts produced by 3D printing technology. Vector furnaces lines are used in multiple applications within the aerospace sector, including many of the most critical processes, such as heat treating turbine blades and landing gear. Vector is also in wide use in the aerospace aftermarket to maintain fleets of aircraft.”
