Tool production in vacuum furnaces

The Vector vacuum furnace on order features a compact design. The heating chamber’s medium size (600x600x900) enables efficient simultaneous heat treatment of many types of parts. The characteristic feature of this design is directional cooling, which guarantees uniform cooling of all of the work inside the furnace, even those with problematic shapes. Vector is equipped with convection heating - a system that improves heat transfer efficiency during heating at lower temperatures. A round heating chamber with very good temperature distribution and an efficient and ergonomic vacuum pumping system are distinctive characteristics of this furnace. This solution is equipped with an efficient cooling system that ensures a maximum hardening pressure of up to 15 bar abs.

The rapid development in the region was recognized by the Contract Heat Treatment Association (CHTA), which awarded SECO/WARWICK with the title of “Top 10 Brand for Customer Satisfaction.” The fact that we can produce our furnaces directly at the location of companies from the FORTUNE GLOBAL 500 list, results in faster deliveries, lower costs, better logistics and, consequently, our Asian customer satisfaction,“ said Maciej Korecki, Vice President of the SECO/WARWICK Group’s Vacuum Segment.
