Solar Manufacturing Ships Furnace to Aerospace Fastener Manufacturer

Vacuum Heat Treating Furnace

Sellersville, PA, July 19, 2023 – Solar Manufacturing recently shipped a vacuum furnace to a US-based aerospace fastener manufacturer. The furnace will be primarily used to age-harden various fasteners of high strength alloys used in the aerospace industry.

This is the second Model HFL-5748-2IQ furnace purchased by this customer. Like the first furnace, the new furnace features a graphite insulated hot zone of 36” x 36” x 48” deep with a weight capacity of 5,000 lbs., a maximum operating temperature of 2400°F, and a 100 HP quench motor. Solar Manufacturing’s SolarVac® Polaris control system was customized to interface with the customer’s in-house automation system for recipe control and data acquisition.

Jason Davidson, Regional Sales Manager for Solar Manufacturing, stated, “Due to steady growth, our customer needed additional furnace capacity to keep up with demand. The quality and performance of the first furnace was enough to influence the customer to invest in the second furnace after 2 years of successful operation. We had proven our furnace technology was reliable and robust.”
