"KEEP THINGS MOVING"
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
In addition to the automatic loading and unloading, the fixtures also
require bar coding. The laser bar coding feature serves a variety of
* 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
