Orange, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2008
Engineered Production Systems (EPS) was recently selected by Vector Industries, an industry frontrunner of solution heat-treated high-strength aluminum components for aircraft and aerospace applications, to engineer and construct and install its newest addition to their manufacturing capabilities. The system is a large drop bottom furnace for solution heat treat and quench of aluminum components. The installation of the EPS drop bottom system provides a much-needed capability for aluminum heat treatment in the Pacific Northwest.
Vector Industries is situated on the outskirts of Seattle, WA, a well-known hub for the aerospace industry. This proximity is ideal for supporting the industries demanding process reliability requirements. With the installation of the drop bottom furnace system, EPS was able to bolster Vector Industry's capability to handle the expanding production needs of the region.
This drop bottom system includes a moving platform that supports quench and rinse tanks. The combination of heat and agitation in the rinse removes glycol from parts. The drop bottom system was also designed for aging of aluminum components.
Engineered Production Systems has a long-standing history with the aluminum industry. In the past, EPS has provided a wide range of heat treat ovens for forging preheat, solution heat treating, aging and other related heat treating applications.
Engineered Production Systems (EPS) has been a leader in application engineering and sales of industrial and pharmaceutical ovens since 1978. Initially a manufacturer's representative, EPS now offers its own line of batch and continuous industrial ovens for industrial applications. This line supplements rather than competes with the equipment offered by those heat process equipment manufacturers EPS currently represents. EPS oven systems are installed in the U.S. and in many other countries, including Indonesia, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, China, Mexico, India, and others.
