April 4, 2003: Maumee, Ohio… Surface Combustion, Inc. has received an order for a Super Allcase® Batch Integral Quench furnace line with companion equipment from Signicast Corporation in Hartford, Wisconsin.
Signicast is a recognized leader in the investment casting industry. The Hartford facility is one of the most advanced production facilities of its kind in the world. The company has successfully implemented digital and robotic automation, a cellular manufacturing philosophy, and the Signicast exclusive Continuous Flow Manufacturing (CFM) approach.
To further expand its advanced, full service capabilities, Signicast selected another technology leader, Surface Combustion for its heat treatment requirements. Signicast recognized the value and benefits provided by Surface’s Allcase® batch integral quench furnace equipment.
The furnace line will consist of one (1) Allcase® furnace with atmosphere top cool and oil quench, one (1) Allcase furnace with atmosphere top cool only, two (2) Uni-DRAW® temper furnaces with nitrogen atmosphere and Surface’s patented Intra-Kool® technology, one (1) RX® endothermic gas generator with ENDOQUENCH® air cooled heat exchanger, one (1) spray/dunk companion washer, and a wide array of companion equipment which includes a charge car and multiple work handling tables.
The furnace line will have the ability to process effective work sizes up to 36″ wide by 48″ long by 36″ high. The Allcase furnaces will have a maximum furnace operating temperature of 1800°F.
The Allcase furnaces will utilize a “push/push” handling system. With this system, a furnace operator loads the furnace vestibule and transfers the load into the furnace heating chamber. After the “heating” portion of the cycle, the load is automatically transferred from the furnace chamber to the quench vestibule via a System #1TM rear handling mechanism. The work is then transferred automatically to either the atmosphere top cool chamber or the oil quench depending upon the process being performed. After completion of the quench cycle the operator unloads the quench vestibule with the charge car provided.
As a world leader in the heat treat furnace and associated equipment industry, Surface Combustion has over 85 years of experience in designing and manufacturing furnace and companion equipment for it’s customers’ processing needs.
