AP&T MLF teamAP&T says it is now launching a new generation of its Multi Layer Furnace (MLF) for press hardened vehicle parts. The new furnace has been developed on a number of points compared to earlier models, resulting in improved process stability and availability, claims the company.

The new generation of MLF is equipped with a new control unit for more secure power supply, sensors that give better control over heating, a more rigid hatch installation and new, sturdier heating elements. In order to prevent hydrogen brittleness, the furnace is also equipped with dew point control.
