A vacuum heat treatment and brazing system equipped with a high-pressure gas quench, produced by Seco/Warwick, Dąbrowa, Poland, is to be installed at Grupo TTT’s facility in Bergara, Spain. Grupo TTT, headquartered in Gipuzkoa, Spain, provides heat and surface treatment services to clients in industries including aerospace, automotive, machine tools, capital goods and oil & gas.

Seco/Warwick’s signature pressure quenching systems are said to offer a high degree of process flexibility and precision control. The system to be installed at Grupo TTT will enable its heat treatment team to run a variety of processes in a single system, and marks the fourth system purchased by the company, with an earlier installation in Europe and two systems currently in operation in Mexico.

Oihane Larrañaga Ezeiza, Project manager of Grupo TTT, stated, “We continue to partner with Seco/Warwick because we value their commitment to the highest quality precision control systems that enable us to meet and exceed customer specifications in all of our various markets along with superior service to keep our equipment online and running efficiently.”

“Seco/Warwick builds efficiencies into every aspect of product designs, from the very beginning of our history we have prioritised precision temperature controls for both heating and cooling as well as conserving furnace atmosphere and energy to produce optimum system performance and total value for our customers,” explained Maciej Korecki, VP, Vacuum Heat Treatment Furnaces at Seco/Warwick.

“We want each and every piece of equipment to be regarded as a high-performance tool that works reliably every day, flexible enough to change within the daily needs for processes and production providing both profitable operation and satisfied customers,” he concluded.

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.
