Solar Manufacturing recently shipped a Mentor® vacuum furnace to a medical device and implant manufacturer in the Southeastern United States.

The Model HFL-2018-2IQ features an all-metal insulated hot zone, a load weight capacity of up to 250 pounds, and a maximum operating temperature of 2,400° F. The Mentor vacuum furnace will be used to age harden and anneal medical devices and implants.

“We were awarded the project based on our relationship with Solar Atmospheres and our quick furnace delivery,” said Dan Insogna, Southeast regional sales manager for Solar Manufacturing. “Together, we delivered the Mentor furnace along with a water system, and a custom heat-treat recipe for the medical grade components being processed. Our customer was up and running with their new Mentor furnace within a week of delivery.”

Solar Manufacturing designs and manufactures a wide variety of vacuum heat treating, sintering, and brazing furnaces and offers replacement hot zones, spare parts, and professional service.
