New Compact Vacuum Furnace Simplifies Industrial Brazing

VF-10 Vacuum FurnaceROCHESTER, NY: April 1, 2005 -- Induction Atmospheres has developed a new industrial vacuum furnace designed for induction brazing and general purpose heating. The Model VF-10 efficiently heats parts of virtually any shape in a high-temperature, high-vacuum environment.

To facilitate continuous flow manufacturing, the VF-10 utilizes the latest advances in quick, clean solid state induction heating technology. The furnace requires less than eight minutes to reach 1900°F; cool down time to 400°F is less than 20 minutes. The heating zone within the VF-10’s stainless steel chamber has a 9" (229 mm) ID, 10" (254 mm) height and is customizable according to individual process requirements. The furnace operates at high vacuum or partial pressure of an inert gas and can reach a maximum temperature of 2,300°F.

With the VF-10’s compact, 4’ (1220 mm) x 6’ (1830 mm) footprint and fast operation, it’s easy to set up a continuous manufacturing flow and achieve dramatic improvements in overall cycle time. The furnace is designed for brazing parts of unusual shapes, repairing “orphan” parts from other heating processes or virtually any application which benefits from whole part heating.

Founded in 2002, Induction Atmospheres is an independently-owned induction heating system integrator with extensive laboratory facilities, design engineering expertise, full in-house machining and manufacturing capabilities. Clients such as General Electric, NASA, General Motors, Boston Scientific, Lufthansa Technika and Siemens have purchased IA turnkey heating systems for industrial brazing, welding, hardening and general purpose heating applications. The company is headquartered in Rochester NY. For more information, please call (585) 368-2120..
