Waukesha, WI, January 05 issue of Industrial Heating Magazine - As production buzz words like "Through Put"and "Bottle Neck" become more and more common in the thermal processing industry, so has the requirement of heat resistant alloy fixtures to become more efficient. "Alloy Efficiency" is the focus of a partnering effort between Castalloy design engineers, customers and Material Handling companies to develop heat treating fixtures that optimize customers' processes.

Although Castalloy offers a complete line of standard products, special design "part specific" fixtures are required to facilitate automated handling of parts. The characteristics necessary for these products to be functional are; dimensional accuracy, dimensionally consistent, lightweight and provide the maximum ratio of alloy to parts-per-load.

Recent successful proposals to captive heat treaters in both the automotive and consumer product markets, have yielded cast solutions that allow machined parts to be automatically loaded directly onto heat treat fixtures after machining. The pre-loaded fixtures are then transported to the heat treat department and processed. After heat treating, the parts are then unloaded automatically.

In addition to the automatic loading and unloading, the fixtures also require bar coding. The laser bar coding feature serves a variety of functions:
* Track alloy life cycles.
* Identify status of parts "In Process".
* Keep accurate inventories of parts.
* Establish manufacturing capacities.
* Project "Work Cell" requirements.

From concept and design...

   ...through delivery of the finished cast components - our continuous updating of equipment and technology assure Castalloy's tradition of leadership within the heat resistant metal casting industry.
