MacLean-Fogg Takes Delivery of AFC-Holcroft UBQ Batch Furnace Line

MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions in Saegertown, PA is taking delivery of a complete UBQ 36-48-36G Batch Furnace Line.

The equipment consists of an AFC-Holcroft UBQ (Universal Batch Quench) integral quench batch furnace, along with a tempering furnace, nitrogen atmosphere tempering furnace, spray/dunk washer, transfer car, scissors lift table, and E-Z 1800 endothermic gas generator.

The UBQ furnace is often specified when flexibility in production capacity is desired, or if future expansion is considered. The modular nature of AFC-Holcroft's UBQ line allows heat treaters to quickly adapt to process or production changes, and integrate ancillary equipment to increase production as capacity requirements dictate.

The Saegertown division, which joined the MacLean-Fogg family in 2008, is one of North America's leading cold forging and machining operations, serving a diverse range of industries with high quality net shape and near net shape parts.
