Origin Story: Ed Kaske"There are many origins in my story and I would not change any of them, as each one led me to the next phase of my career. I consider myself very lucky to spend 40 years in a job that I found challenging and very satisfying."
Gear Carburizing in Vacuum
Solar Atmospheres provides low pressure vacuum carburizing (LPVC) that significantly increases the surface hardness/strength of steel parts for improved friction and wear. Performing LPVC in a vacuum furnace eliminates oxygen and prevents IGO (intergranular oxidation) that is inherent in atmospheric carburizing, resulting in clean parts with less distortion reducing post process finishing operations, and costs.
Better Metal at Forest City Gear
Forest City Gear performs fast, comprehensive analysis and verification of metal alloys for quality assurance and control using its new Thermo Scientificâ„˘ Nitonâ„˘ XRF Analyzer. The metal alloys used in barstock and/or near net shape blanks can be verified before gears are produced. The Analyzer can even be used to verify the plating thickness over metal.
Diablo Delivers High-Temperature Box Furnace
