An annealing furnace is a piece of equipment used to heat materials at very high temperatures to change their hardness and strength properties. For over 50 years, VX LLC has been selling used annealing furnaces to manufacturing facilities across the globe.
Annealing Furnaces at VX Machinery
The annealing furnaces sold by VX LLC offer excellent control over time and temperature relationships to produce materials with the necessary machinability, dimensional stability, cold work (process annealing or in-process annealing), electrical, and mechanical qualities. This process can be applied to both ferrous and nonferrous alloys.
Materials are heated to extremely high temperatures in annealing furnaces to alter their strength and hardness characteristics. For example, steel manufacturing commonly uses annealing to relieve internal stresses that may lead to defects and produce a more uniform internal structure. In addition, this procedure is frequently used to make glass, metals, and other materials less
brittle and more workable.
VX LLC deals in quality-used annealing furnaces for various annealing operations, including final, full, intermediate, partial, and recrystallization. Our annealing furnaces can accommodate a wide range of time and temperature ranges—whatever your manufacturing process requires.
Annealing Furnace Features
Because different processes have different requirements, our stock of used annealing furnaces comes with the following features.
Gas or Electric Heating
VX LLC selection of used furnaces offers both gas and electric heating options, depending on your needs.
Monitoring and Control
Most of our machines feature computerized monitoring and control systems that can keep an eye on a variety of conditions, such as the temperature of the furnace, atmosphere flow, oxygen content, carbon control, dew point, belt speed, and more. Annealing furnaces make use of various industry-standard systems to perform these functions.
