VacuumFurnaces.com, a mobile and online Question-and-Answer directory, has been launched for vacuum furnace equipment end-users; commercial and in-house vacuum heat treaters; and equipment, product, and service suppliers.

The Q&A application helps to eliminate the obstacle of finding the right answers to specific questions hidden within the massive amounts of information that exist both online and offline.

“Our Q&A collaboration platform empowers vacuum furnace end-users with fast and easy access to practical knowledge and expertise within and outside their organisation,” stated Alan Charky, the site’s founder. “Our community is made up of commercial and in-house vacuum heat treaters, equipment and service suppliers, and aftermarket and industry specialists with the specific knowledge members are looking for.”

VacuumFurnaces.com is said to help improve employee productivity and job performance by accelerating and simplifying access to practical vacuum heat treating answers and solutions. It enables users to ask questions, explore categories and tags, and look for members within their area of specialisation.

Charky continued, “Finding a specific piece of information can be a slow and frustrating experience, on the web, you must cycle through pages upon pages of search results that might or not answer your original query. Our platform fills in the information gaps that web searches cannot satisfy.”

He notes that members who suffer from a lack of information sharing within the vacuum heat-treating community now have a powerful and accurate tool for answering their questions. The Q&A directory provides immediate benefits across a wide range of operational functions such as production, maintenance, customer service, troubleshooting, lead generation, training, and more. “Targeting fellow members seeking a specific type of answer could be very valuable to corporate members, and our Q&A platform is capable of tapping into that,” Charky added.

With a large part of the average workday taken up with running a vacuum heat-treating shop, finding members who are willing to help vacuum furnace end-users perform their jobs more efficiently, reduce costly downtime and increase productivity is said to be a welcome improvement. Not only do members sign up for free, individually or in a private or public group, and can ask questions anonymously, they also get access to a network of highly-skilled members that can help them find answers to tough questions.

“Our platform leverages the power of our Q&A directory to enhance the user experience resulting in significant productivity gains and networking opportunities,” concluded Charky.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
