Aluminum Solution Treatment
CEC is the undisputed world leader in aluminum furnces- find out why.
CEC is the world leader in Aluminum Solution heat-treatment of all types of castings, forgings, extrusions and tubing. For tubing, extrusions, and bar / plate applications see our "Aluminum Mill Equipment page".
CEC has extensive experience in heat treating castings. To date, CEC's T4 & T6 installations process more than 40 million aluminum cylinder heads, engine blocks and wheels per year. CEC has invented and developed solution heat-treatment machine innovations and processes that have produced more than 105 patents. To develop and optimize processes, we have run more than 5000 CEC sponsored or funded casting tests to prove our process innovations. Our corporate focus is to save you and the end customer operating costs and pollution while improving your product quality. CEC invented and is still the world leader in trayless and basketless head, block and wheel casting processing.
Continuous Solution Heat Treatment Equipment:
- Roller Hearth
- Trayless on Chains or Rotary without Trays or Baskets
CEC Inventions (partial list) or improvements:
- Basketless on Chains
- Short Cycle Heat Treatment (Solution for less time)
- Close Proximity Heat Treatment (Hot Castings from the Die)
- 3 in 1 = Heat Treatment, Sand Removal and Sand Reclaim in one machine
- Single stack energy optimization and pollution reduction = CleanCast(R)
Chain, rotary or other "cell type" or "close proximity" furnaces can be located directly at the mold filling or forging output stations and will heat parts with radiation, nozzle-flow or other potential product enhancement features to allow shortest possible heat-treatment time and cost. All process features give you the greatest assurance that your physical properties will be met.
Call us today to tell us about your production needs. We may be able to set up engineering or testing that will show you how your casting or forging costs can be minimized and your pollution reduced. CEC systems are the proven best. See why Mercedes, Ford, Norsk Hydro, BMW, Nemak, Teksid, Superior, VAW and other fine casting companies put their development and engineering trust in CEC for their largest projects.
