Birchwood Casey’s new CNC (computer numerically controlled) TRU TEMP finishing system is designed to be a non-polluting, low temperature system for automatically processing iron and steel components with a high quality black oxide finish. Designed specifically for handling the patented TRU TEMP process, this self-controlled tank line eliminates the labor costs normally required with manual hoist lines. The CNC process line eliminates process guesswork and generates highly repeatable results. The standard, 110-gallon tank line system produces 4.000 – 6,000 lbs of finished parts per 8-hr shift and the line can be sized and configured to accommodate any volume of work or production capacity. The company says users have reported low operating costs with short payback periods—as low as 12-18 months.
