- Auto/Manual Modes
- Full Colour Touch Screen
- Maximised Chamber Capacity
Contracted to design and manufacture a high vacuum furnace to outgas metal components that are used in safety critical systems within the civil nuclear industry.
The design brief was to maximise the chamber capacity but keep the overall dimensions within a very specific size.
The system was required to have both automatic and manual operation capability via the full colour touch screen.
