Wisconsin Oven Ships Two Electrically Heated Standard Draw Batch Ovens to an Automotive Parts Manufacturer

Feb 22, 2017

Wisconsin Oven Corporation shipped two (2) electrically heated standard draw batch series ovens to a heat treat facility in Mexico. The batch ovens will be used in tempering various steel parts for the automotive industry. The tempering ovens have sufficient capacity to heat 1,200 pounds of steel within 210 minutes and are used for special tool steels such as H13 D and M series.

Each draw batch oven has a work chamber of 5’11” W x 11’0” H (to top of door mast) x 5’10” L and maximum temperature rating of 677°C. The customer required guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±10°C at 600°C which was verified through a nine (9) point profile test. The walls and ceiling feature “CAN” style construction that includes 2” of 14# density high temperature industrial felt (block) insulation. The hearths consist of (2) 304 stainless steel pier rails on 24” centers. A vertical lift, pneumatically operated door is provided at the front of each batch oven.

“By adding the two tempering ovens to their facility, the customer increased their production capabilities significantly to better support their customer base.”- Nick Toci, Sales Engineer
