For NEW Equipment, use one or more of these excellent resources:

  • Industrial Heating magazine’s Annual Online Buyers Guide (click here)
  • ASM International’s Heat Treating Society’s Online Buyers Guide (click here)
  • Heat Processing magazine online marketplace (click here). This is a European (German) based publication well worth knowing.
  • IHS Global Spec (also knows as Engineering 360). (click here) Registration is required and it is not as targeted a directory as either of the above.
  • ThomasNet (click here). This link will take you directly to a high level overview of “heat treat furnaces.” Try it.
  • Google search tip: If you decide to use Google or another popular search engine, be sure to put the words “heat treat” or “heat treat furnace” in quotes. That will help eliminate getting results that have only “heat” or only “treat” in the results.
