The Seco/Warwick engineering team has designed a new form of continuous control over the heating and cooling of the entire cycle in multi-chambers furnaces.
It is a unique, technological solution, on a global scale that Seco/Warwick believes could revolutionize the heat treatment process and exceed the aerospace sector's standards.
"All of our customers set the bar high and expect the equipment of the highest quality that will meet the strict industry standards and their expectations in terms of technology implementation. Nevertheless, the aerospace industry sets the bar the highest. Meeting such requirements would not be possible without the regular introduction of product and technology innovations, like this one," says Katarzyna Sawka, global marketing director at Seco/Warwick. "The combination of a rich, long-term experience and expertise of Seco/Warwick with the latest technologies leads to the introduction of another groundbreaking solution that by enabling constant temperature control, provides customers with a heat treatment process of even higher quality and efficiency."
The patented solution, designed to meet the highest AMS standard, addresses the inclusion of thermocouples during the heat treatment cycle, which move between chambers attached to the tray. Temperature control is achieved based on a special construction that allows the operator to monitor the temperature in both chambers. This provides full temperature control of the processed parts in a multi-chamber vacuum furnace during the entire process. The solution has already been successfully implemented in a two-chamber vacuum furnace CaseMaster Evolution used for vacuum case hardening for the most challenging industries, such as aerospace, but also automotive machinery, wind energy, transmission and commercial heat treat facilities.
