ECM USA - ECM Technologies started manufacturing heat-treatment furnaces in 1928. Since that time, ECM personnel have always been completely committed to extending their knowledge in the field of temperature control, high pressures, vacuum and the behavior of materials. This expertise, on an industrial scale, has always been enriched by our close partnership with furnace users, engineers, heat treat engineers and developers. Today, our knowledge base is at the core of all our customers' production lines. It is this concern for caring and listening, combined with our passion for our profession, which has forged ECM Technology and ECM USA's recognized spirit of innovation. 9505 72nd Ave. Suite 400

Specific to the gear industry, low pressure vacuum carburizing in an ECM vacuum furnace system has helped many manufacturers provide stronger, less distorted gears for complete end user products. The highly repeatable processes assure through-put rates and consistent heat treat quality. We welcome and encourage potential customers to visit our R&D Synergy Center in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, to discuss and/or develop your gear or shaft recipe(s) and maximize the potential of your heat treat process!
