Solar Atmospheres Adopts Vacuum Oil Quenching Technology in 2020
August 5, 2020
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has impacted every industry and business across the globe. Solar Atmospheres of Western PA (SAWPA) is no exception. “We have had to think on our feet, find innovative solutions and pivot quickly, to change protocols to protect our employees and to safeguard our business” states Bob Hill, president of SAWPA. “At first, it seemed almost necessary to pause our business, take time to figure out every minute detail to play it safe. However, that philosophy was not how we built this business after the 2001 recession, nor would that have supported our employees, their families and our customers today” responded Hill.
Solar views this period as a way to set new paths of transformation and growth for the company. The company is encouraged by the adoption of new technology, such as Vacuum Oil Quenching (VOQ). The latest VOQ quench line, including a hardening furnace, tempers, washer, and charge car, will be installed and fully operational by the end of 2020. To make room for this brand-new innovation, SAWPA continues to progress in the construction of its 15,000 square foot addition. Solar could not be more excited for this expansion. This is a time for all business to look at strategic ventures and new diversified offerings with a new lens to better serve this ever-changing environment.
