Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies Installs an In-house Vacuum Brazing, Sintering and Heat Treatment at Alfreton Derbyshire UK.

Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies is pleased to announce the addition of in-house Vacuum Brazing, Sintering and Heat treatment within our Component Coating and Repair facility based in Alfreton Derbyshire UK.

– The new Vacuum Furnace has a working area of 600mm x 450mmx 900mm and is fitted with a sealed cooling system meeting the latest environmental legislation.

– The vacuum brazing process uses a filler alloy which is pre-placed on the component in a location that as the furnace temperature is raised and the filler metal alloy melts, it flows into the assembly capillary joints and affects a strong bond.

– The Vacuum Furnace also brings Sintering and Heat Treatment capabilities to Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies for components such as:

  • Stators
  • Nozzles
  • Honey Comb Seals
  • Rings
  • Blades
