Custom Heat Treat Furnaces
Aircraft Parts Manufacturing in Mexico
An aircraft parts manufacturer in Mexico needed a solution heat treating system that could handle large batches
of aluminum parts. Despatch designed a custom heat treat system that included a bottom-load furnace, quench
tanks, load car, stationary water rinse tank and two custom aluminum aging ovens.
The furnace operates at 260° - 593°C (500° - 1100°F) with ±2.8°C
(±5°F) uniformity after stabilization. A load hoist mounted inside the
furnace lifts the parts rack up into the furnace, then lowers the heated
parts into the selected quench tank within seven seconds of the end of
the heating cycle. The system features a touch-screen PLC controller
with screens in both English and Spanish. PLC control of the material
handling equipment and processing parameters allows virtual “one-touch”
operation with minimal operator input.
With a large base of installed units, Despatch has vast experience with
custom solution heat treating application. Our equipment exceeds process
requirements for even the most demanding customer needs.
