AFC-Holcroft delivers heat treating equipment

A Tier 1 automotive supplier located in the Midwest has placed two orders with AFC-Holcroft for the supply of heat treating equipment related to the processing of aluminium.

The first order will consist of a roller hearth homogenizing furnace for processing aluminium products. The complete system includes a multi-position loading table, a multi-position furnace, cooling station and multi-position unload table.

The second order is for a solution heat treat line, which will also be used for processing aluminium products. This system will include charge and discharge transfer cars, a multi-position solution furnace, water quench system, multi-position age furnace, multi-position accumulation charge and discharge tables, accumulation cross-over mechanism and a tray pull-off station.

Additionally, AFC-Holcroft will provide their Remote Diagnostic Service during the furnace warranty period. This service provides a complete remote monitoring and diagnostic package including transmission and analysis of machine data, targeting the most common or noteworthy events and identifying root causes. The Remote Diagnostic Service transmits data automatically to AFC-Holcroft’s secure servers, eliminating the human time and cost associated with manually gathering historical data for the same purpose.

Field installation, start-up and commissioning are also included with both orders.
