ECM vacuum furnaces use cold wall technology that enables higher temperature treatments and easy integration into machining lines. This allows for a higher throughput while preventing inter-granular oxidation during carburizing - thanks to the absence of oxygen.
• Easily replace batch IQ and/or sealed quench systems
• Electric heating, cold-wall technology
• No fire hazards or open flames
• Minimize energy usage and reduce CO2 emissions
• Increase production & process repeatability
• Improve metallurgical properties
Vacuum also improves employee safety by removing the risk of fire hazards and open flames generated during the process.
Furthermore, thanks to the higher productivity and minimized energy loss with vacuum technology, you will see an increase in production efficiency which directly influences environmental standards and green initiatives.
