The core of our business is the supply of consumable graphite parts, discs, end plugs, crucibles and trays. We have a machine shop equipped with CNC mills and lathes all operating at optimal speed to produce low cost consumable parts.
Carbon Fibre Composite (CFC)
Carbon Fibre Composite (CFC) also described as Carbon Carbon Composite (CCC) is a light weight structural element within a furnace hot zone to either protect the insulation or to provide strength and rigidity with a low thermal mass. Equally the CFC can be used as heating elements giving long spans with low mass. We can essentially supply whatever you would like us to design – CFC angles, CFC channels, Carbon fibre hearth beams, carbon fibre furnace bases, vacuum furnace protection plates, vacuum furnace heating elements. Carbon fibre studding, nuts and washers.
Very popular items are the CFC Temperature Uniformity Survey (TUS) frames – these replace the nickel alloy TUS frames which distort and become unusable in a short time. Bespoke or modular jigs and fixtures are also popular being lightweight your energy is being spent heating (and cooling) components rather than supports and fixtures.
