Seco/Vacuum, a Seco/Warwick Group brand, has sold a vacuum aluminum brazing (VAB) furnace to an international aircraft component supplier.
The furnace is designed to meet tight temperature tolerances of ±3°C, incorporating a powerful high-vacuum system with diffusion pump. The furnace is equipped with six temperature control zones and can accommodate loads with dimensions up to 36″↔28″↔48″ / 900↔700↔1,200mm (WxHxD).
The new furnace joins other Seco/Warwick Group vacuum furnaces installed at this location. The prior acquisitions provided a basis of credibility because of their successful performance; however, the decision to go with Seco/Vacuum hinged as much on the supplier’s newer proven technologies and collaborative approach to accommodate the customer’s unique requirements.
A VAB furnace allows brazing of aluminum parts for applications where use of brazing flux is not permitted due to corrosion potential. This feature applies especially to parts used in critical applications such as aircraft. Seco/Vacuum’S VAB furnace operates in deep vacuum and delivers perfect temperature uniformity, meeting Class 1 requirements by AMS2750F.
Vacuum aluminum brazing is especially useful in aeronautical and aerospace applications because of the challenging specifications that must be met. For any firm conducting its own aluminum brazing in-house or for those heat-treat shops with opportunities to work with aerospace customers (especially for military applications), and aerospace components suppliers, Seco/Warwick’s Group VAB offers a sound solution, especially when coupled with a collaborative working philosophy.
Delivery is scheduled for early 2022.
