Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems says that it has commissioned a custom high temperature box furnace line for an aerospace company in the US. 

The furnace will reportedly process 36’ wide by 48’ long by 24’ high workloads, weighing up to 2,000 lbs, and will be used for solution treating of high alloy forgings. It has been is designed with multiple trim zones to meet AMS 2750 temperature uniformity requirements across a wide temperature range and allows for fast furnace recovery times.

According to Gasbarre, the system is equipped with a water quench tank and air-cooling station, while material handling is done through a pick and place manipulator to improve fixture life.  The manipulator has fully automated cycles.
