Heat treatment specialist adds non-ferrous furnace capability

Wallwork Heat Treatment : 26 March, 2013  (Company News)
Thermal processing and surface engineering specialist, Wallwork Heat Treatment, has commissioned a new 800kg capacity furnace for processing aluminium and magnesium products. The new furnace provides variable heat treatment for cast, forged, wrought or fabricated components from single items of up two cubic metres to batches of components as small as 0.5mm diameter.

The furnace is equipped to use a variety of quenchants and has the capability to achieve a rapid quench time of less than 10 seconds.  Very small pressed or cast parts can therefore be processed effectively.

“Our core business remains the thermal processing and surface coating of high value components for aerospace, motorsport and medical device manufacturers. The new non-ferrous furnace adds to our commercial processing capability and is part of a three year development programme that will see a further significant increase in this capacity,” explained sales and marketing director Simeon Collins.

Business development manager for the project, Ian Lacey, commented, “All processes are fully documented for quality assurance purposes, currently to AS9100 standard and we have on-site laboratory back-up for testing and validation. We can process test items to prove the effectiveness of the treatment before scaling up to full volume processing.”
