V for Vector – V for versatile
Vector® is SECO/WARWICK’s most versatile vacuum furnace, a single chamber HPGQ horizontal configuration, loaded with capabilities. It’s been designed and created based on a long and close cooperation with partners across a number of industries and all over the world. Their needs and problems became a challenge which lead to Vector’s invention. That’s how invention becomes reality. SECO/WARWICK creates individual products that provide customers with reliable, safe and environmentally friendly solutions for heat treatment and metallurgy, and ensure the economic efficiency of their businesses.
Maciej Korecki, VP, Vacuum Furnace Segment at SECO/WARWICK says: “precision, high uniformity in heat treated parts, high consistency in workloads and high speeds in batch processing along with low energy and gas consumption makes our product most desirable solution on the market. Often our clients demand just one thing – for instance: high uniformity in heat treated parts which solves problems of distortions they experience using different technology. All the other features come as a surprise and an added value.”
With hundreds of systems installed worldwide, SECO/WARWICK’s high pressure quench furnaces have proven record of high-performance technology.
Third Vector solution for the same client
