Solar Manufacturing Ships Five Furnaces to Southeast US

“Solar Manufacturing recently shipped five Mentor® vacuum furnaces to a customer in the Southeast USA who provides products to a wide array of industries, including aerospace and medical. The model HFL-2018-2IQ furnaces feature a graphite-insulated hot zone, a load weight capacity of up to 250 lbs, and maximum operating temperature of 2400° F. The Mentor® vacuum furnaces will be used primarily to sinter and stress relieve stainless steel components.

“Our customer worked directly with our R&D team at our sister company, Solar Atmospheres, including in-house metallurgists and PhD Chemist,” states Dan Insogna, Southeast Regional Sales Manager for Solar Manufacturing. “In partnering with Solar Atmospheres, we developed the furnace recipes with use of Mentor® furnaces at Solar Atmospheres. The customer received a line of brand new Mentor® furnaces with their custom recipe preloaded and ready to go.”

Solar Manufacturing designs and manufactures a wide variety of vacuum heat treating, sintering, and brazing furnaces and offers replacement hot zones, spare parts, and professional service.
