Another #heattreat supplier who seems to get it.
Whenever and wherever possible #Nadcap and #AMS2750 compliance should be automated to help ensure the quality & repeatability of product.
French furnace manufacture: BMI is helping to automate compliance by building a vacuum furnace whose load thermocouples are programmed to insert themselves automatically into the work-zone of the furnace in pre-determined locations.
This custom-made equipment uses pneumatic actuators to drive the load thermocouples into position. The furnace program can be modified based on the type of load being run.
This new furnace design to be installed in SAFRAN and AIR FRANCE’s newest workshop.
