Nonferrous furnace capability

  • 28-Mar-2013 11:45 EDT

Wallwork Heat Treatment has commissioned a new 800-kg-capacity furnace for the processing of aluminum and magnesium products. The furnace provides variable heat treatment for cast, forged, wrought, or fabricated components from single items of up to 2 m3 to batches of components as small as 0.5 mm diameter. The firm’s core business remains the thermal processing and surface coating of high-value components, including those for the aerospace and motorsport industries. The nonferrous furnace is equipped to use a variety of quenchants and can achieve a rapid quench time of less than 10 s. Very small pressed or cast parts can be processed effectively.
