New Vacuum Facility

March 19th, 2015

The first quarter of 2015 will see the completion of our new vacuum facility with the introduction of an Ipsen 524 VTC vacuum furnace.

This will significantly increase our capacity both in terms of the volume of parts that can be treated but also the size of component.

The design of the furnace allows for a wide range of quench pressures to be used so a diverse range of materials and processes can be carried out.

Full recording of the treatment time, temperature and vacuum pressure for every load can be provided to the customer along with physical testing of the components and/or test pieces.

This project has also seen us double the electricity supply available on site both to allow the installation of this furnace and allow for further expansion in the coming months and years.
