Fifty-Ninth Anniversary of the Allcase® Furnace
On the fifty-ninth (59th) anniversary of the birth of the Allcase® Batch Integral Quench (BIQ) furnace we looked through our albums at pictures of hundreds of its younger brothers. The size of the album is far too large to reproduce, but we’d like to share a picture from our archives.
The Allcase® shown below processed 460 new pounds per hour of pinions, gears, and shafts with one man supervision. That was the Allcase® furnace line production rate at Harnischfeger Corporation, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. (Heat Treat Review, Volume 13, No. 1, Surface Combustion, December 7, 1961)
