SECO/WARWICK’s contract for the delivery of the retort furnace continues the cooperation with this tool manufacturer, who currently operates a SECO/WARWICK vacuum furnace for brazing, hardening and vacuum carburizing. A new process solution, the retort furnace, will be designed according to the customer’s requirements, with a customized heating chamber so that the furnace is compatible with the tooling used in the customer’s production process, and so that the process itself is safe and repeatable. The characteristics of the manufacturing line and details of the production process are the key elements that will determine the final design of a dedicated solution.

Our goal is to become the first-choice supplier, and we are earning this title thanks to an individual approach, listening to the needs of our partners and innovations,” said Maciej Korecki, VP Vacuum Segment Business, SECO/WARWICK Group.
