The SECO/WARWICK Group is organized in five business segments
• VAC | Vacuum Furnaces
• ATM | Atmosphere Furnaces
• AP | Aluminum Process Equipment
• CAB | Controlled Atmosphere Brazing Equipment
• VME (RETECH) | Vacuum Metallurgy Equipment
with production sites in Poland, USA (2), India, China and Brazil. Sales, service and spare parts offices are located in Russia, Belarus and Germany.
Our advanced, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly heat treatment and thermo-process equipment with guaranteed process technology is operated in aerospace, power generation, tools & dies, medical, machine and automotive industries, in commercial and in-house heat treatment plants, HVAC production, steel plants, metallurgy and all other industries, that require heat treatment and heat process equipment.
The business segment VAC (vacuum furnaces) supplies horizontal and vertical vacuum furnaces for annealing, brazing, sintering, gas and oil quenching, vacuum carburizing and nitriding (LPC & LPN) and other processes.
The business segment AP (Aluminum Processes) furnaces are applied for Aluminum processes like melting, holding, preheat processes, homogenizing, annealing solution heat treat and artificial aging. Furnace types are walking beam furnaces, roller hearth furnaces, tower furnaces, drop bottom furnaces, pusher furnaces, pit furnaces, batch systems with cold and hot cars.
The business segment ATM (Atmosphere Furnaces) offers carburizing, nitriding, hardening, annealing, tempering and special process (like spherodizing annealing) atmosphere furnaces. Types offered are batch furnaces (chamber, pit, tip-up, bell, bogie hearth), semi-continuous furnaces (multi-chamber furnaces, automated linked process lines), continuous furnaces (belt, pusher, walking beam, roller, rotary hearth, rotary retort), auxiliary systems (washers, quench tanks, cooling chambers, hoppers, feeders, conveyors, load storages, feeding systems of any type).
The business segment CAB (Controlled Atmosphere Brazing) supplies controlled Atmosphere Brazing (CAB) equipment, using a noncorrosive flux. This is the preferred process for aluminum heat exchangers in automotive branch. A CAB furnace system includes thermal degreaser, a fluxer unit, a dry off oven, and the CAB furnace. Types are radiation (CAB R), convection/radiation (CAB CR), convection (CAB C) continuous, Active Only® semi-continuous and chamber furnaces with vacuum purging for heat exchanger prototypes (R&D).
The business segment RETECH/VME (Vacuum Melting equipment) supplies advanced process technologies and equipment include Plasma Arc (PAM) and Electron Beam Cold Hearth Melting (EB), Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM) and Vacuum Arc Remelting (VAR) used for melting, refining, atomizing of casting reactive and refractory metals, super-alloys as well as rare earth metals.
SECO/WARWICK is the worldwide and local partner in heat treatment and thermo-process equipment with the competitive edge for your business.
