“Armida Oradei, General Manager at American Heat Treating, a leading heat treating facility in the Northeast, is pleased to announce a substantial expansion in their capacity with the installation of a new batch furnace. The newly installed line is composed of a 36″ x 48″ x 36” IQ BeaverMatic oil quench furnace with a stainless steel spray/dunk post wash and two tempering furnaces with nitrogen capabilities. An endothermic generator and a charge car are also included in the line.

“This installation enables us to bring in new business and new customers to AHT. We have a great team here at AHT. Everybody is very motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated to our company,” said Oradei. This is the second large investment the company has made since Ms. Oradei joined AHT. The first one was the introduction of an induction machine, which at the time was a new technology offering that helped to expand AHT’s ability to support its customers.
