National Mint of Egypt opt for SECO/WARWICK solutions

30 June 2021

SECO/WARWICK will deliver a Vector® vacuum furnace to another national mint. The furnace will be delivered to the manufacturer of circulation and collection coins in Egypt. The National Mint of Egypt is the seventh mint in the world to choose SECO/WARWICK solutions. 

The Vector® vacuum furnace with 15 bar high-pressure gas quenching is equipment that perfectly fits the operating performance requirements of mints. The Vector enables quick heat treatment, with a working space that is optimum for circulating and collection coins, embossing dies, medals, and special orders. Furnaces with a graphite round heating chamber can be used for a majority of standard hardening, tempering, annealing, solution heat treating and brazing processes. In the mint industry, Vector vacuum furnaces are very popular as they ensure powerful, uniform gas cooling, which guarantees the high hardness and durability of mint tools. The perfect quality of mint punches and other products is ensured by the very high purity vacuum atmosphere. The parameters of the equipment purchased by the Egyptian Mint are very similar to the solutions delivered by SECO/WARWICK to the Mint of Poland. Some of the equipment installed by SECO/WARWICK has been operated by this customer for over 9 years.
