A global rise in component production has increased demand for heat treatment systems capable of meeting production needs today, yet scalable for future production. AFC-Holcroft offers many thermal processing solutions, and highlights one of the most flexible heat treating furnace designs available - our UBQ (Universal Batch Quench) system. The UBQ is capable of running a variety of metallurgical processes, and can be delivered as a single unit or as a complete, fully automated cell integrated with companion equipment such as tempering furnaces, pre-heat furnaces, spray-dunk washers, forced air cool stations and more, all tailored to your specific needs. With its modular design, additional cells can be added for maximum productivity with consistent, repeatable metallurgical results.
Another modular, flexible product featured is AFC-Holcrofts EZ-Series endothermic gas generator, offering a unique, maintenance- and operator-friendly design. A 5:1 turn down ratio provides substantial savings in operating costs vs. nitrogen methanol; often with return on investment less than 1 year. Units can be provided individually, or up to 3 units grouped into an array; each unit having standalone plug-and-play type control.
When consistent high volume production is needed, AFC-Holcroft spotlights our classic pusher-style furnace for continuous throughput under protective gas atmosphere. Our pusher-style furnace design allows the furnace chambers to be combined into one, or separated into multiple chambers for independent control over temperature and atmosphere. Many of the largest production sites worldwide rely exclusively on AFC-Holcroft pusher furnaces for maximum control and economy.
