Mercury Marine Advances Heat Treating Processes with ECM Technologies Vacuum Furnace Systems with Advanced Automation
August 30, 2021 – Mercury Marine of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, recently launched a plan to upgrade its heat-treating capabilities with a move to the low-pressure carburization and high-pressure gas quench system. Partnering with ECM Technologies, the new plan incorporates completely automated Nano vacuum heat treating systems. The innovative Nano system incorporates 20 bar nitrogen gas quenching along with Low Pressure Carburizing (aka vacuum carburizing). The Nano, with its versatile configuration, will operate several different carburizing, hardening, and spheroidizing processes simultaneously. This change marks a departure from Mercury’s traditional atmospheric carburization and oil quench system while benefiting from advantages that come with vacuum processing.
ECM Eco System: Green Business Award Recipient
May 3, 2021 - At the Beijing Shaping Tomorrow Gala (annual dinner for the French and Chinese business community), CCI FRANCE CHINE Green Business acknowledged outstanding businesses for their deep commitments to environmental sustainability, from reducing water waste to improving atmospheric conditions. ECM was recognized as one of the companies who is leading the way towards a better, brighter, greener future. ECM's ECO Furnace was presented the Green Business Award for accomplishing a cleaner, safer, and more efficient operation in the heat treat industry; more specifically the environment benefits from a low carbon footprint (energy consumption is minimal and CO2 emissions are near 80% less). The future of heat treat is looking quite eco-friendly (specifically in the automotive industry), as recently announced during the 2021 Virtual Leaders Summit on Climate, the United States plans on reducing CO2 emissions approximately 50-52 percent by 2030. Comparably, the France Recovery Plan has designated ecological transition as top priority...
