Amsted Rail Purchases Afc-Holcroft Furnace Line

Amsted Rail®, a global leader in fully integrated freight car systems for the heavy haul rail market has added a new, complete AFC-Holcroft UBH line to meet a growing need for additional heat treatment capacity.  This latest purchase includes a batch style carburizing furnace, two expansion modules to increase endothermic generator gas output, a rotary hearth reheat furnace for press quenching, and a continuous integrated parts washer and temper furnace.
 
“The batch furnace itself has an effective load size of 72 inches by 72 inches by 56 inch with a gross load capacity of 13,000 lbs, which is considered very large for this type of equipment, but is in fact one of AFC-Holcroft’s standard sizes,” stated Tracy Dougherty, Sales Manager at AFC-Holcroft.  “The ability and experience to provide equipment for reliable processing of such large loads is just one of the benefits that AFC-Holcroft is able to offer, and one more thing that sets us apart from our competitors.”
 
Amsted Rail® is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois (USA), with locations spanning the globe, in every significant railroad market.  The equipment is scheduled to ship to a joint venture facility located in Eastern Europe, in the third quarter of 2018.
