Heat Treat News
Best regards,
December 2015. This issue of “The Monty”, the worldwide publication of the
heat treating industry marks our last of 2015. Casting our eyes back over the
past year we would have to say that in general it was a good year for most heat
treaters although a little slower than 2014. In North America it was definitely a
good year largely because of the automotive and aerospace sectors although
Texas and Louisiana saw their worst year in many after the collapse of the oil and
gas industries. Mexico ranks as one of the fastest growing areas for heat treating
and Europe and Asia also posted a good score card for the year. Two areas that
were on the losing side were Brazil and Australia where both saw a very marked
decline. However in just a month everything gets reset to zero and we are hoping
that 2016 will be a reasonably good year for our industry.
"Southern Thermal Systems , a well established sales rep company for over 20
years based in Texas is ending their 25 year relationship with Ipsen effective
December 1st. Southern Thermal Systems will remain dedicated to the Thermal
processing industry and exciting changes will be coming soon."

ThermProcess. The world’s largest heat treat show is without a doubt
ThermProcess which is held every four years in Düsseldorf, Germany. We have
spoken before about the shear size of this show and how it dwarfs all others
including China and the US. For good or for bad it has now become a three year
event. We like it but will Exhibitors? This is a pretty big expense for anybody that
wants to be seen at the show and of course the point generally is not being seen at
these shows but not being seen. We randomly selected this photo from the most
recent show which shows Petra and Otakar Prikner of Prikner Heat Treat in the
Czech Republic . November 30, 2015
“IHI buys 100% of the shares of Steinmüller Engineeringfrom
Siemens AG. After refreshing its product portfolio in 2013 Siemens
AG decided to look for a new owner for Steinmüller Engineering
GmbH. From July 2014, IHI Corporation, headquartered in Tokyo,
Japan has taken over Steinmüller Engineering GmbH in
Gummersbach from Siemens AG. IHI is a major Japanese machinery
& plant manufacturer with international activities. The product range
includes besides steam generator and flue gas cleaning systems,
among other products also storage installations for liquefied natural
gas, aircraft engines and turbo chargers. IHI will not only take over
all employees of Steinmüller Engineering GmbH, but also intends to
further expand the Company, which today employs almost 100 people. The new
owner, IHI Corporation, with an annual turnover of about 10 billion EUR is a good
strategic partner for further growth of Steinmüller Engineering GmbH. This is
supported by the existing long year business relationship between IHI Corporation
and Steinmüller Engineering GmbH. With the acquisition of the company, from July
2014 Dr. Hans-Ulrich Thierbach will have Mr. Tetsuya Iwasaki, an experienced
colleague from IHI Corporation, at his side in the managing board of the company."
Dry Coolers. Without a doubt the most successful company in the world when it
comes to providing water cooling systems for vacuum furnaces is Dry Coolers in
Michigan. This is not an exciting news item by any stretch of the imagination but
worth mentioning anyway.
“Dry Coolers of Oxford, Michigan recently was authorized to apply the American
Society of Mechanical Engineer (ASME) Certification Mark to its products. Dry
Coolers can now offer the ASME Section VIII, Division 1 “U” and “UM” Certification
Mark to its Solanus quench oil coolers, Thermoflow plate & frame heat
exchangers, CyClean centrifugal separators, and other products. This certification
the pressure
vessel offered has
been designed with
engineering formulas for its pressure rating, was made with certified material with
material traceability, the welding was done by certified welders, the pressure test
was witnessed by an authorized 3rd party witness, and the overall quality system is
IHI/ Steinmüller Engineering. We actually don’t really care about this news item
as it has a Japanese company, IHI buying a Siemens company in Germany which is
not involved in the heat treating industry. However what makes this interesting is
that IHI make makes heat treating furnaces and has recently shown a very large
interest in the European heat treating market and there are a lot of
rumors that they are very interested in the North American market
as well. For instance they recently purchased a five location
commercial heat treat operation in Germany and also set up offices
in Europe to sell their furnace systems. Let’s see where this goes.

" Solar Manufacturing announced today the United States Patent
and Trademark Office (USPTO) has officially issued a patent for the
new 20 bar super quench vacuum furnace as Patent number
9,187,799. The official patent is available to the public at
One major advantage of the new design is the use of movable
radiation baffle doors that prevent heat loss during heat cycles and
open wide to avoid pressure drops during cooling cycles. The
application of the open doors in combination with the use of a
plenum fan arrangement, generous annular space for uniform gas
flow, and a low static pressure loss nozzle design provide inert gas
quenching capabilities typically achieved only with oil quenching by
concentrating the available system horsepower on the task of
producing a high nozzle exit velocity. The system also permits excellent cooling at
lower pressures. Low pressure cooling is typically sacrificed by undersized fans
normally selected for high pressure quench systems. The new system operates in a
constant horsepower mode over a large range of quenching pressures.
Commercially, Solar Manufacturing’s first 20 bar high pressure quench vacuum heat
treating furnace is located at Solar Atmospheres of Western PA. The furnace has a
36” x 36” x 48” work zone with a 5,000 lbs. load capacity, and the cooling rates are
reported to be significantly better than any other high pressure gas quench furnace
currently in production."

we at "" can tell us why this is worthy of a new
patent. Don't get us wrong we are impressed and we hope this new
concept is well received in the industry. November 27, 2015
Mario Ciampini/Bodycote. There are few people in the heat treat industry as well
known as Mr. Mario Ciampini, former North American head of furnace builder Ipsen
and for the past number of years one of the top people at commercial heat treater
Bodycote. We have below the official press release from Bodycote but before we
get to that we have a few personal comments from Mario himself. November 25,

Monday Morning Briefing. Let’s start off in the Southeastern US for our “Monday
Morning Briefing”. First up we see that Apex Tool Group LLC is expanding its
Sumter County, SC facility. This is of interest to us because this includes more
austempering capacity at the plant. "Apex Tool Group, headquartered in Sparks,
Md., is one of the largest manufacturers of professional power and hand tools in the
world, serving the vehicle assembly and maintenance, industrial, aerospace,
electronics, construction and do-it-yourself market segments. The company's
Sumter facility produces hand tools under the Crescent®, Wiss®, HK Porter® and
Xcelite®brand names, and will be adding production of Armstrong® and Allen®
hand tools as well as private label brands. Apex will be consolidating several of its
manufacturing facilities into its Sumter plant, which currently employs
approximately 200 associates". GKN Sinter Metals. Powdered metal company GKN
is sinking $20 million USD into their Conover, NC location. We hear that part of this
expansion will include more sintering capacity. This plant makes makes camshaft
caps and transmission ends that are used in General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co.
and Fiat Chrysler automobiles. We might as well stick with GKN (in this case GKN
Aerospace) where we see the company will be adding more heat treating capacity
Neugebauer, Quality Systems Manager, said "The effective application of this quality
management system ensures that ongoing improvements are part of our
manufacturing process, and that employees in their day-to-day production improve
and protect customer investments, and that customer satisfaction with our Furnace
Control and Marathon Monitor brand probes remains high. This certification is not
strictly a formality, it's an invaluable approach for delivering quality sensor products
and services to the heat treating and combustion marketplace." "The next phase of
our total quality management begins January 2016. A surveillance audit for ISO/IEC
17025:2005 accreditation is scheduled at our Milwaukee, WI calibration laboratory,
which tests and calibrates Waukee brand flow meters." commented Neugebauer.
We’re chasing down a real interesting rumor to the effect that there is
a new commercial heat treater in the DFW area of Texas a heat
treater who will be specializing in Gas Nitriding. We’re pretty darn
sure this is a definite but we’ll get some more details first before
providing names. While gas nitriding is a growing area the Texas
market is a tough one these days especially for a brand new
commercial heat treater. It was announced earlier this year that
Machine Tool & Gear in Corunna, Michigan was planning on making
a large investment in the plant. We have been told that the company
now has a total of 5 batch IQ furnaces. "Alhern-Martin Industrial
Furnace Co. received a contract for the supply of a continuous-belt
copper brazing and bright annealing furnace line from a multinational
atmosphere-agitation cooling chambers includes an exothermic gas
generator and exothermic gas dryer. Thermcraft Inc. of WinstonSalem, N.C., received an order for a large box furnace from an
Alabama-based company that remanufactures steel mill rolls. The
company will use the furnace to heat up steel mill rolls to operating
temperature so they can be welded and remanufactured to their original size".
Leybold Vacuum is a well known name in the vacuum heat treating business which
is why it is worth mentioning that their parent company Oerlikon will be selling this
division to Atlas Copco. "Pfäffikon SZ, Switzerland – November 20, 2015 – Oerlikon
today announced that it has signed an agreement to sell its Leybold Vacuum
business to Atlas Copco. The transaction is based on an enterprise value of CHF 525
million and is expected to close by middle of the year 2016". Moving on to really
important news we were able to help celebrate the 40th birthday of KC Wilbur
one of the best known heat treat reps in the Chicago area.
Ipsen Lights Out Installation. We ran across a very impressive “Lights Out” batch
IQ installation the other day. Lights out refers to a completely automated heat
to their plant in Orangeburg, SC-in this case in the form of a monster aluminum
drop bottom oven. “Plant modifications are underway at GKN Aerospace's second
Orangeburg County facility as the company prepares for the manufacture of inlet lip
skins for the Boeing 737 MAX and 777X. GKN is raising the roof of its second plant
in the Orangeburg County/City Industrial Park to about 56 feet and digging pits
about 20 feet deep”. Notice a trend here? Business investment is booming in the
Carolinas. Personally if I were to start up a brand new heat treat facility in North
America the Carolinas would be my first choice and Mexico my second choice.
treating operation and while there are a few out there it is not something you see
every day. In this case the installation (provided by Ipsen) is up for sale and
consists of 2 hardening furnaces, 4 tempers and a washer and cost over $3.5 million
USD when it was installed a few years ago. The photo below shows you what part of
the installation looks like.
Lindberg/MPH ships Aluminum Immersion Holding Furnace. Lindberg/MPH
announced the shipment of an electric immersion aluminum holding furnace for a
leader in the automotive parts industry to maintain aluminum at the required
temperature for die casting. The aluminum holding capacity of the furnace is 2400
lbs. This furnace utilizes Lindberg/MPH patented board lining and high efficiency
immersion tubes/heaters. Dual air-over-oil lifting tanks insure smooth opening and
closing of the fill well cover. A cast fill well was added to the furnace shell using a
castable virtually inert to aluminum.

heat treat furnaces, including pit, box, IQ, and belt type for the ferrous and nonferrous markets. Lindberg/MPH customers cover a wide range of industries
including aerospace/military, automotive, commercial heat treating, energy/oil,
San Yung Electric Heat. You see very few Asian built furnaces in North America
(with the exception of Japanese furnace builder Dowa) for the very simple reason
that it is a heck of a long way to ship a piece of equipment weighing many tons and
there are some pretty darn good local furnace builders in North America. So it
caught our eye when we ran across a San Yung 2,000 pound per hour mesh belt
hardening line. San Yung is located in Taiwan and is a very large provider of mesh
belt furnace lines but this is the first one we have seen outside of Asia. This photo
shows the installation. And that wraps up our Monday Morning Briefing for

Certified Heat Treat/Springfield, Ohio. Commercial heat treater Certified in
Springfield, Ohio recently issues a press release about their new Batch IQ line but
this is what the local press had to say. November 20, 2015
"A local manufacturer is wrapping up a more than $2 million project to consolidate
and upgrade, which includes buying one of the one of the largest machines of its
type in the country. As part of moving its West Carrollton operations to Springfield,
Certified Heat Treating Inc. installed a custom-built furnace that should attract more
business. Joe Biehn, president of the company, said the 48-inch height capacity
means the furnace, a $900,000 investment, can handle larger loads. It also can
administer a larger variety of heat treat processes. “We have the only one of these
in the Midwest,” Biehn said.
Biehn said Certified Heat Treating already is getting more jobs from existing
customers because of the new machine and he now plans to market it more
aggressively to go after new business. Heat treating involves high-temperature
processes on metal parts under strict conditions to make them stronger, which is in
high demand with the resurgence of manufacturing. Certified Heat Treating, which
has about 30 employees, had been operating from two locations since it acquired
Heat Treating Inc. in Springfield in 2013. It completed the move to Clark County this

"Bodycote Trading Statement. International commercial heat treater Bodycote
released November 17th/2015 their most recent trading update. What you see
below is a very condensed version of the update (the complete update can be found
“Group revenue was 7.5% lower at constant exchange rates (9.7% lower at actual
exchange rates). Group margins have remained similar to the first half. The
Aerospace, Defence and Energy business revenues were lower by 11.9% at constant

Personally we find their list of new investments to be of even more interest than the
financials although we are very curious what “a classical heat treatment facility” is.
We believe the new Mexico location will concentrate on vacuum carburizing while the
McLaughlin Services/Avilla, Indiana. With all due respect to the good people of
Avilla it is not a large town which makes it rather surprising that there are two
companies in town involved in the heat treating industry. The first is alloy supplier
Wirco which we have mentioned this week, the second is furnace re-builder and new
furnace builder McLaughlin Services. by Jeff McLaughlin the company was started a
number of years back and has thrived and prospered over the years. A visit this
week showed us a number of furnaces either being built or rebuilt. The one photo

REMIX S.A./Galvanizing Line. November 18, 2015
September 2015 – REMIX S.A. has completed the first of two phases of an order for
a customer in the middle of Ukraine. The first phase was the delivery and
commissioning of a new, high temperature, hot dip galvanizing line used for the
manufacture of small parts. It is believed to be the first such technologically
advanced line in the country for small parts such as galvanized screws, small cast
iron or steel fasteners. Once complete, the line will provide the customer with
advanced solutions such as automatic drum line for surface chemical preparation,
ventilation with absorber, charge dryer, galvanizing furnace, water tank and load
transport system. A second phase of work involving equipment retrofitting is now
underway. As part of Phase 2, the customer’s existing galvanizing line will receive
several improvements, to be completed by the end of 2016. The line will be retrofit
to include extra tanks for surface preparation, as well as modifications to the
furnace, dryer and automatic galvanizing and centrifugation.
Wirco Global Headquarters. As a provider of cast and fabricated high temperature
alloy components for the heat treating industry Wirco is one of the best known
names in the North American market (although the company does deliver product

"Shanghai Advanced Metallurgical Technology Corporation (SAMT). “Every
two years, the largest heat treatment event in China takes place in Beijing and
SAMT was part of this event Nov. 2~4th, 2015.
SAMT highlighted their vacuum technology which they called “Vacuum Multi-purpose

Monday Morning Briefing. Italian fastener manufacturer SBE has a furnace line
for sale and it comes with an interesting history. Going back to 2005 Vermont
Fasteners (which was part of the Infasco Group) went bankrupt which resulted in
all the equipment being put up for auction. Included in the equipment
was a 4,000 pound per hour Aichelin cast link belt line including
temper, wash, etc., etc. The complete system was bought by SBE
and shipped to Italy where it was never installed mainly because SBE
around this time bought two other Aichelin lines giving them enough
heat treating capacity (incidentally the company is now up to 13 lines
which is a pretty darn big heat treat department). So it would appear
that the whole line can be yours for just 1.9 Million €. Going back to
2001 a new similar line from Aichelin would have been
approximately 3.1 Million € so the asking price is almost 2/3 of new.
For a 14 year old furnace this certainly seems to be on the high side.
Good luck with that. Where are they now? Robert Nobauer. For
many years Robert worked for commercial heat treater and furnace
manufacturer Rubig in Austria-at one point working as Sales
Manager. Turns out Robert recently left the company (on very good
terms by the way) to act as an consultant and also as a
manufacturers rep selling heat treating products. The name of his
company is IBNP GmbH and we wish him the best of luck.
We thought the recent heat treat show in Germany, HK 15 was well organized but a
little light on attendance. Turns out several exhibitors are complaining about how
few visitors there were and the extremely high costs. Cologne is an expensive place
to begin with but to really rub salt in the wound all the hotels in the area double or
triple the room rates which means you can be paying several hundred euro per night
for a room which is normally a fraction of that. I know were pretty pissed at paying

Lindberg/MPH Press Release. "Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of an
electrically heated box furnace used for hardening industrial grade
saw blades for the woodworking industry. The box furnace is
designed with a maximum temperature rating of 2,000°F and
normal operating temperature of 1,600°F and work chamber
dimensions of 72”W x 48”D x 10”H. The design of the heat treat
furnace features a flow through configuration that allows green
product to be loaded on one side and treated materials to be
unloaded on the opposite side of the furnace. The flow through
design provides the customer with an efficient load/unload
operation. The heat treat furnace shell is fabricated with 3/16” mild
steel plate and the refractory lining utilizes vacuum formed ceramic
fiber modules with low heat storage for fast heat-up rates. The
furnace has two (2) chamber doors, one in the front and one in the
rear of the furnace, that open vertically away from the furnace using
two pneumatic cylinders on each door. Each door has a flame curtain
that provides an atmosphere and heat barrier when the doors are
opened and foot pedals for ease of operator loading/unloading.
Lindberg/MPH is a leading manufacturer of standard and custom
industrial heat treat furnaces, including pit, box, IQ, and belt type
for the ferrous and non-ferrous markets. Lindberg/MPH customers cover a wide
range of industries including aerospace/military, automotive, commercial heat
treating, energy/oil, electronics and the forging markets. Founded in 1917, the
company has more than 75,000 industrial furnace installations worldwide and their
equipment is backed by a full range of customer support services and the most
extensive replacement parts inventory in the industry. Lindberg/MPH is a proven
Meritor/Heath, Ohio. It was announced just a few months ago that auto parts
supplier Meritor would be closing their plant in Heath, Ohio. The plant which
suppliers parts for heavy trucks had an in house heat treating department with all
the equipment going to the auction block December 2 2015. This appears to have
been an “all Surface Combustion” operation which includes a couple of old style
endothermic generators and a 3 row pusher. The generators will probably go for a
few thousand each at best mainly because of their age and the fact that there is
very little demand for generators these days. The pusher is a bit of a wild card but it
is probably 50/50 whether it gets scrapped, the reason being that while there is
some demand for pushers there is almost no demand for 3 row pushers. We shall
see what happens. November 11 2015

"Solar Atmospheres Press Release. "Solar Atmospheres of Western PA recently
had a groundbreaking ceremony for a facility to house their newest addition - a
brand new 6-1/2 foot diameter by 48 foot long vacuum furnace with a load capacity
up to 150,000 lbs. In the beginning of the new year, the behemoth furnace will be
assembled within the newly constructed 18,000 square foot building. The furnace
will be uniform to within +/- 10°F per AMS 2750 E between the production
temperature ranges of 300°F to 2250°F with a maximum operating temperature of
2400°F. Rapid vacuum pump down to the low 10-6 Torr range will be attained by
utilizing three Edwards booster pumps, three Stokes roughing pumps, and three 35”
Varian diffusion pumps. Fast and uniform cooling will be achieved by using three
300 HP variable speed drive blower motors. Finally, a unique insulation pack will be
installed into both load cars which will ultimately help reduce normal atmospheric
(dew point) contamination. This $10 million dollar plus project will complement the
other large US patented dual bottom load car vacuum furnaces (one 36 foot long
vacuum furnace, three 24 foot long vacuum furnaces, and one 12 foot long vacuum
furnace) that are currently in production along with ten mid-size vacuum furnaces.
Bob Hill, President of Solar Atmospheres of Western PA, states, “It is truly hard to

Used Equipment
Listing Used Equipment
Want to get true market value for your used heat treating equipment? is the only way to do this! Unlike used equipment dealers we work
on a commission basis meaning no high overheads, no buy and resells, no high
expenses which means that you as a seller get what your equipment is worth-not
what a used equipment dealer will pay you for it. Not sure what your equipment is
worth or how saleable it is? Let us know and we can give you a free appraisal and an
honest answer about market conditions-no BS. Before listing we will require a signed
copy of the "Terms and Conditions". Please use our Contact Form or email Dale
at [email protected] all pertinent information including asking price (which we
strongly recommend) age, condition and if possible photos. When selling please
keep in mind that we do NOT ask for an exclusive sales agreement - if we don't sell
it we don't get paid - PERIOD. You can’t lose by listing with we sell
your equipment or we don’t get paid-period.

We strongly encourage your personal inspection of the equipment before purchase.
At "" you are guaranteed of finding the best priced used equipment
in the industry due to the fact that we do not buy and resell and have no associated
costs. Instead we put buyers and sellers together on a small commission basis
meaning that at the end of the day you are paying what equipment is worth-not
equipment with a huge mark up attached! In addition you generally can see the
equipment installed, running and talk to the actual operator far better than seeing a
used furnace in the back of a dingy warehouse. Don’t see what you are looking for?
