Today’s “high tech” vacuum furnaces have evolved significantly as advancements in materials, controls, and process technologies have progressed. These furnaces were developed to enhance metallurgical quality, improve braze quality, reduce inter-granular oxide formation, and provide better control over heating and quenching processes. Since the introduction of the first vacuum furnace for brazing in the late 1950s and early 1960s, continuous improvements over the past 50 years have led to the development of the most advanced vacuum furnaces available today. A “high tech” vacuum furnace utilizes cutting-edge materials, innovative designs, sophisticated control systems, and advanced features to deliver high performance, efficiency, and productivity, all while maintaining low utility and maintenance costs.
