For applications in the aerospace sector, the heat treatment concerns engine components subject to stress and mechanical stress in order to improve the resistance to wear and corrosion to which they are exposed. HTS Vacuum Furnaces are NADCAP certified worldwide.
In the automotive sector, especially in the sports sector where the components are subjected to high vibrations, the processing in vacuum furnaces guarantees excellent results without oxidation and deformation, giving equal toughness to the whole piece and without altering its surface characteristics.
Among the most strategic sectors, the energy sector certainly stands out, in which heat treatment plays a very important role. The HTS team, thanks to the know-how acquired in the field, designs and builds ovens capable of guaranteeing versatility, flexibility and reliability in the processes.
The use of 3D printers is increasingly present in the production of components for sectors that invest in the research of additive manufacturing technologies. The metallic materials used require special heat treatment after printing to achieve the desired mechanical and specific properties.
The moulds sector, of all types, requires particular care in the stages of production and heat and surface treatment. The increasing size of the moulds requires more capacious ovens with excellent performance in terms of heating uniformity and cooling speed.
In recent years, the watchmaking and precision micro-mechanics sector has had a push to innovate some aspects of production, especially in the treatment of the elements that are more sensitive to wear. One of the most affected processes is that of heat treatment.
The field of heat treatment for tools, essential for optimising the properties of metals and alloys, provides an increase in use thanks to the introduction of new treatments of vacuum brazing diamond tools, with the use of active pastes. The HTS team designs and manufactures vacuum ovens and equipment suitable for performing all these services.
Universities and Research Institutes are in growing need of furnaces used by the Departments of Materials Sciences. The basic requirements for the equipment used are accurate temperature monitoring and secure data logging.
Another area of application for HTS Vacuum Furnaces furnaces is the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. In this area, compliance with the high standards is required to offer specific solutions and ensure reliability.
