Aerospace Heat Treat Systems
Wing and fuselage spars and skins, turbofan blades and inlet cones, extrusions, landing gears, and seat castings are a few of the dozens of products that are annually processed by aerospace manufacturers in CEC supplied heat treat systems. These parts are manufactured to stringent tolerances and standards. Oftentimes these parts require accurately engineered and built alloy fabrication which CEC produces in-house.
In 1903 the first flight by the Wright brothers started with a light wood frame covered in fabric; fortunately plane structure has improved. The materials used for jet plane fabrication evolves constantly to assure that planes fly farther, carry more and are safer than their predecessor. CEC has been there with great companies like Boeing, Martin Marietta, GKN, Grumman and Lockheed to provide close tolerance systems that meet the stringent military/ AMS (2772F, 2770J, 2750E) specifications for aerospace component manufacturing.
Aerospace Furnaces offered by CEC
Some of the aerospace furnace types offered by CEC include:
- Titanium heat treatment systems
- Aluminum vertical and drop bottom furnaces
- Batch or continuous age ovens
- Roller hearth T6 and T7 systems for castings and forgings
- Atmosphere Retort Brazing Furnace
Largest Drop Bottom Furnaces
The largest Drop Bottom furnaces in the world have been designed and installed by CEC and after decades of service the furnaces still meet strict temperature uniformity standards.
Huge payloads, seven second quench and close temperature uniformity are common obstacles to a manufacturer’s success with pieces of jet planes. CEC has successfully crossed these constraint bridges and has continued to help our customers find success.
We would love to brag on our past experience for aerospace applications; can we bend your ear today?
