How Heat Treatment Plays a Role in Your Day

 

At Baker Furnace, we take great pride in the many applications that our products are used for. Since 1980, we have been on the leading edge of manufacturing the highest quality industrial ovens, heat treating furnaces, and pollution control equipment. Over the years, our ovens and furnaces have been used in the production of a multitude of products.

Many of the products that you encounter on a daily basis required some sort of heat treating or thermal processing during their production cycle. These processes are often done in an industrial furnace or oven. The type of industrial oven or furnace supplied depends on the specific process requirements for the material that the product is made of.

Metal parts may need to be aged, annealed, tempered or solution treated to achieve their optimal molecular structure. Composite parts, adhesives, varnish, and other coatings usually need to be cured during the production cycle. In addition to products, heat treatment can be used for pollution control purposes. Fume incinerators, thermal oxidizers, and soil remediation equipment all use heat to remove pollutants from the environment.

Products requiring heat treatment are supplied to almost every industry. From transportation industries, such as Aerospace and Automotive, to energy industries like Oil, Gas and Renewable Energy, it is amazing the effect heat treating has on each of our lives. In the months to come, we will be featuring a variety of applications and products that have been processed in an industrial oven or furnace. Stay tuned to find out just how much heat treating plays a role in your day.

Looking Forward to 2017 in a New Facility!

At Baker Furnace, we’re ensuring that this year starts off on a high note and remains on that path throughout the rest of 2017. We’ve moved to a new facility in Brea, California and are excited to announce our grand re-opening, set for next Thursday, February 9th at 12:00 PM.

The 40,000 square foot building will allow us to continue our commitment to excellence, quality, and craftsmanship in the engineering, design, and manufacturing of custom-built industrial ovens, furnaces, and pollution control equipment. Some of the recent purchases we’ve made include a 10-ton overhead crane, welding machines, and plasma cutter. This new equipment will allow for the most accurate, high-quality, and timely production of our custom industrial ovens used for heat treating, finishing, drying, curing, manufacturing automation and process control.

Along with physical business growth, we’ve doubled the size of our dedicated team of employees. As a leader in the industry and equipment customization, our team is committed to making sure that every client gets exactly what they need no matter the scale or complexity of the project. We are delighted that all the recent updates will allow for increased production capabilities and improved workflow efficiencies for our loyal customer base.

At the celebration, we are including a plant tour and refreshments as gratitude for all the support and hard work everyone has put into making our re-opening a reality. Find us at 2680 Orbiter St., Brea, CA 92821. Please RSVP by February 6th by calling (714) 223-7262 or e-mail: ldietrich@bakerfurnace.com. We look forward to seeing you there!
