Alloy Heat Treatment (AHT) have installed a drop bottom solution treating oven designed for intensive use up to 550 degrees centigrade. It will be used to apply heat treatment to semi-finished aero parts to increase their strength, endurance and life span.
The investment has been driven firstly, to ensure that the company boasts the latest equipment and technology to provide continued and required excellent service the aerospace industry and secondly following a general return to confidence across the board in manufacturing.
Quality Manager Steve Roberts said: “Industry has emerged from a very tough period but we have survived by staying true to our ethos throughout. This is the pride we take in the relationships with our customers and our dedication to providing the very best service for them, coupled with investing in our people through the development of staff at all levels.”
“This ethos has helped AHT to safeguard jobs and the investment will further reduce lead times for our customers and bring growth to our company.”
The staff have been trained in-house to use the new oven and it will be operational in June. The new installation also means that AHT will move from one shift, to two as they continue to grow.
