In response to increasing large furnace capacity demand, Solar Atmospheres (California) recently added additional large furnace capacity to complement their current facility equipment arrangement.
Specially designed for SCA, Solar’s new furnace offers features and characteristics that will enhance SCA’s ability to process a multitude of processing parameters that currently exist in the vacuum heat treating industry. It will also allow SCA to prepare for future material advancements and specification modifications that require adherence to process controls to include heating/cooling rates, process vacuum levels, temperature uniformity and mistake-proof processing.
“Solar CA is very excited to add this versatile piece of equipment to our consistently growing vacuum furnace inventory,” SCA President Derek Dennis said. “SCA has worked very closely with our sister company Solar Manufacturing to design this furnace in order to best meet the needs of our expansive customer base on the west coast. We feel that this furnace will add a competitive advantage by allowing Solar to expand our vacuum processing capabilities in the large parts market. We’re excited to get the furnace online on May 1st and put her to work.”
