Wallwork takes delivery of new SECO Warwick Vacuum Furnace

Orders for complex vacuum brazed parts are on the up from aerospace, motorsport, medical and other dynamic industries


Vacuum brazing has boomed at Wallwork since the company established their first dedicated cell for production of complex components, including honeycomb rings and segments, in 2014. Orders for complex vacuum brazed parts are on the up from aerospace, motorsport, medical and other dynamic industries. Completing part of a £2.7 million pound investment by Wallwork, the brand new furnace will boost production capacity to meet this demand.

Vacuum brazing technical sales manager, Peter Cookson, explained, “Our highly skilled vacuum brazing team is able to assemble extremely intricate components made from scores of parts, joining dissimilar metals with precision such as copper, stainless steel, nickel based super alloys and titanium. Joining under vacuum is controlled so that the finished assemblies are clean and dimensionally accurate.”

With vacuum brazing, customers can achieve time and cost savings compared to other fabrication methods. Operating alongside heat treatment and hard coatings services, increased vacuum brazing capacity means Wallwork offers customers a one-stop shop for their thermal processing needs. Particularly for customers in aerospace, Wallwork having AS9100, Nadcap and many prime approvals gives extra assurance.
