ATL has just received the latest addition to increase our processing capacity – a brand new vacuum furnace.  This is the single largest CAPEX investment in ATL over the last 10 years and adds 50% to our heat treatment capacity.  Commenting on the delivery, operations manager, David Henderson said, “This furnace will add significant additional capacity to our heat treatment capability and will help ATL expand and grow our component repair services.  The furnace also encompasses a hydrogen cleaning facility which will deliver additional capability for taking on new work and new material types.”

The furnace is currently being commissioned and will be available for use by the end of January.
