Manufacturers of quality metallurgical and heat treating equipment since 1984. Camco's furnaces are extremely efficient and have the smallest overall equipment size per work-zone volume on the market. Most of our models will roll through a standard door frame with little or no deconstruction. We provide the best warranty in the industry and nearly all repairable parts are stocked for immediate replacement. From its manufacturing facility in the San Francisco Bay Area, Camco supports businesses in a broad range of industries located all around the world.
Camco offers a large range of standard hydrogen/inert atmosphere furnace models, all equipped with the same outstanding user-friendly control features. Efficient to run, simple to program, built to the highest standards and have a low cost of ownership compared to competitors. Exceeds all industry safety standards. Less expensive than a high vacuum furnace if inert and reducing atmospheres can work for your processes.
Have the confidence to run parts in 10-7 torr pressure ranges up to 2000°C at the push of a single button. Like our hydrogen furnaces, Camco's vacuum furnaces are available in many sizes and models, all equipped with the same outstanding user-friendly control features. Standard turbomolecular pumps are dependable and nearly maintenance-free with proper care. Though most commonly used for clean firing and annealing, our vacuum furnaces are becoming more frequently used for active metal (ABA) brazing, which is an excellent alternative to ceramic metalizing.
Since 2021, all Camco furnace have been built standard with modern touchscreen controllers. This new controller was developed in-house for use specifically with Camco Furnaces. These intuitive controllers cut down on training time, simplify process engineering, and increase operator accuracy.
