A global manufacturer of cutting tools has purchased an additional vacuum temper furnace from Pennsylvania-based Seco/Vacuum (SVT).

The new furnace at the North American manufacturer’s operations will be used for tempering and stress-relieving metal parts, is part of the company’s growing manufacturing expansion and complements another commissioned earlier in 2019 at this facility. Seco/Vacuum is a Seco/Warwick company.

The horizontal, front-loading furnace is purpose-built to accommodate the customer’s needs with an all-metal hot zone for clean vacuum processing. As with the earlier furnaces, one of which was installed at a different facility, the new furnace includes a convection fan and a pressurized gas quench for quick cooling.

The Seco/Visory team approach enables customers to navigate complex decision paths to achieve the most effective and efficient solution. Seco/Vacuum provides consultation, project engineering, installation, and aftermarket support from its Meadville, Pennsylvania, headquarters via the company’s Seco/Visory team consulting service. Seco/Visory is a cost-free service for qualified companies. It allows heat-treaters to examine their needs, evaluate equipment options appropriate to those needs, and make an informed decision with the help of SVT’s heat-treatment experts. Each year Seco/Vacuum and its parent company, Seco/Warwick, build scores of vacuum furnaces for the global heat-treating markets.
