Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems recently manufactured and commissioned a high temperature box furnace line for an aerospace company in the U.S. Midwest.
The system is custom designed to meet the customer’s strict process requirements, manufacturing methods, and eliminates the need for a quench pit. The equipment will process 36” wide by 48” long by 24” high workloads, weighing up to 2,000 pounds, and will be used for solution treating of high alloy forgings. The single zone electrically heated furnace is designed with multiple trim zones to meet AMS 2750 temperature uniformity requirements across a wide temperature range and allows for fast furnace recovery times. The system is equipped with both a water quench tank and air-cooling station which provide process flexibility in a single system. Material handling is done through a pick-and-place manipulator to improve fixture life. The manipulator’s fully automated cycles enable the system to consistently meet strict time to quench requirements.
