New vacuum furnace in Cleveland

The growth of the Cleveland Division continues with one of five new vacuum furnaces delivered. The 60”x42”x42” furnace is set in place and is currently being wired and piped.  The furnace will be ready for production late July. This represents the first step of a larger expansion that includes a new building.

The furnace features an all metal hotzone and 15 bar Argon quenching with an 8,000lb capacity. This added capacity will enable the Cleveland team to continue to quickly turn critical aerospace components with precisely controlled cooling rates.
