About ECM Technologies

As a vacuum furnace manufacturer subsidiary, ECM USA’s mission is to provide you high quality vacuum furnace systems for a diverse range of industrial and commercial to lab and R&D heat treat applications (vacuum carburizing, vacuum carbonitriding, brazing, sintering, VIM/VAR, MIM, rapid thermal processing/annealing, ageing, chemical vapor deposition, etc), services and aftersales for ECM Technologies™ products in North, Central and South America. Our vacuum furnace systems are built using experienced engineering, advanced manufacturing and installation expertise, and specifically designed to provide high up-time to demanding production environments all over the world – especially in the Automotive and Aerospace manufacturing markets.

Our products incorporate other peripheral equipment to provide a complete, one source, turn-key heat treating solution. This allows our customers to have their complete heat treat system working on one PLC based system, which includes: preheating, automation, heat treating (low pressure carburizing, carbonitriding, neutral hardening with oil or gas quenching) and tempering equipment. These installations are sourced and supported by our directly owned subsidiary here in North America.

The ECM USA team is highly experienced to analyze metallurgical and heat treat distortion data and to evaluate production and budget needs in order to provide economical and high quality solutions to your manufacturing and corporate requirements. Stop by our Pleasant Prairie, WI, office and test your parts in our ICBP® Nano available in our Synergy Center! Our field assistance logistics service team can provide on-site, as needed solutions, and remote assistance is set-up to accelerate and facilitate service.

From identifying needs to installation, as well as maintenance and support, ECM USA is with you every step of the way to guarantee your new furnace system performs as quoted! ECM USA will provide a turnkey installation as part of the quoted package, including:

  • Crating, shipping, insurance, taxes, trucking and uncrating
  • Assembly of system at your site
  • All electrical interconnects between components, power and PLC
  • Debug test and start-up
  • Recipe development and implementation in your facility
  • Maintenance training
  • Simulation software training
