Global Automotive Components Manufacturer Orders Vacuum Furnace to Increase Production


04-May-2022

SECO/VACUUM, a SECO/WARWICK Group company, has received an order for a 2-bar Vector® vacuum heat treating furnace from an OEM who had recently ordered 6 new tempering furnaces for its machine tool manufacturing facility.

 

Vacuum Heat Treat Furnace to Increase Production

The international buyer’s automotive division placed an order for a single chamber high pressure quench horizontal vacuum furnace to increase its annealing production of fuel injector components. The new heat treating furnace will complement an existing SECO/VACUUM furnace in operation at that location since 2002. Because the new furnace is a nearly identical model, they share standard components and will reduce the necessary inventory of spare parts.

SECO/VACUUM’s Managing Director, Peter Zawistowski, said: “Once again, we have been rewarded for a good track record of performance and service support by this international automotive and machine tool components manufacturer. This furnace brings to 7 the number of vacuum heat treating systems we will have delivered to them in the past 3 years. It proves the familiar adage, ‘If we take care of you, you will take care of us.’ It is also very gratifying to know that their 20-year-old furnace is still performing well with our support.”

Quality and performance are built into Vector’s DNA

The new furnace will have a chamber size of 36” x 36” x 48” deep and a load capacity of 3,300 lb. It is designed for a temperature uniformity of +/-10°F to meet the qualifications of CQI-9 and AMS2750F. The furnace will be equipped with SECO/WARWICK’s state-of-the-art control system, which includes a PLC and SECO/VACUUM SCADA systems. A battery-operated electric loader will also be provided to allow safe and convenient loading/unloading operations.

Vector®, SECO/WARWICK’s single-chamber horizontal vacuum furnace, is loaded with capabilities. With hundreds of systems installed worldwide, SECO/WARWICK Group’s vacuum furnaces have a proven record of meeting and exceeding performance expectations.

The perfect solution for automotive heat treatment

SECO/VACUUM’s Vector single-chamber vacuum heat treating furnace is the workhorse of the automotive supply chain, performing a wide range of processes including hardening, tempering, annealing, solution heat treating, brazing and sintering, as well as low pressure carburizing. Vector produces clean, uniform, high-quality parts with repeatable accuracy. Its versatility is matched only by its dependability.
