Solar Manufacturing recently shipped a Mentor® vacuum furnace to Virginia for a customer servicing the tool and die industry.
The Model HFL-2018-2IQ features a graphite-insulated hot zone, a load weight capacity up to 250 pounds, and a maximum operating temperature of 2,400° F. The HFL-2018-2IQ furnace will be used for solution annealing, aging, and brazing. Measuring 12” wide x 12” high x 18” deep, the Mentor includes the SolarVac® Essentials Control System.
“This company is a long-time customer of our sister company, Solar Atmospheres,” said Dan Insogna, Southeast regional sales manager for Solar Manufacturing. “They wanted to own a Solar furnace themselves, for smaller, in-house jobs. Cal Amenheuser, vice president of operations with Solar Atmospheres played a big role in connecting Solar Manufacturing with the customer. The existing relationship with Cal, and Solar Manufacturing’s reputation in the industry earned us this order. We’re all excited they chose Solar Manufacturing for their first furnace.”
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.
