First heat treatment batch quenched in the new Tower furnace

On March 30th 2021, the first heat treatment batch was successfully completed in the newly built Tower furnace.

This was a necessary step towards the qualification of ALUnna’s new Tower furnace following completion of its construction. It was also an important step in order to further advance the qualification process for our revitalised and strategically significant automotive project.

The initial heat treatment took place without deviation from the very strict technical specifications required by the customer. Our engineers and heat treatment specialists were delighted with the results and the excellent temperature uniformity achieved.

Final commissioning of the new Tower furnace will be completed in the next few weeks.

We would particularly like to thank the company Ebner for their commitment and continued support in very difficult circumstances due to the pandemic restrictions in force in order deliver this project on time.
