An international manufacturer of cutting tools has ordered another vacuum tempering furnace from Seco/Vacuum. “This customer demands – and has come to expect from us – a complete range of benefits, including precision heat treat uniformity, consistency from one workload to the next, and fast processing speeds along with low energy consumption. This often contrasts with requests from our other clients who are looking for a single feature, for instance, high uniformity in heat-treated parts to predict and prevent distortion. All the other features with Vector come as added value,” said Maciej Korecki, vice-president, vacuum furnace segment, Seco/Warwick Group.

Vector®, Seco/Warwick’s single-chamber horizontal vacuum furnace, is loaded with capabilities. With hundreds of systems installed worldwide, Seco/Warwick’s vacuum furnaces have a proven record of meeting and exceeding performance expectations.

This is the fourth Vector solution for the same client.

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.

“There is no stronger statement validating Seco/Vacuum’s predictable and excellent product performance than the customer who continues to order more of the same technology from us year after year as they expand. We are privileged to be a part of their growth,” said Piotr Zawistowski, president, Seco/Vacuum.

Vector single-chamber vacuum heat treating furnaces are the ideal solution for machine tool manufacturers. It is available with curved graphite elements or an all-metal hot zone and can be used for most standard hardening, tempering, annealing, solution heat treating, brazing, and sintering applications.
