UAC expands its capacity by another plant in Romania

28 November 2019

Universal Alloy Corporation, a supplier of hard alloy extrusions with international orientation, certified according to the strict NADCAP, AS9100, ISO, and PART 21 POA standards, expands its capacity by another plant in Romania. This will be built in the immediate vicinity of the Romanian international airport Baia Mare and near the European headquarters in Dumbravita/ Maramures. In the future, extruded aluminum tubes and titanium profiles for the aerospace industry will be produced there. This unique location will in future enable UAC not only to supply the assembled products, but also to carry out service and maintenance for airplanes, directly at the airport, thus extending the value-added chain.

OTTO JUNKER, an experienced supplier of modern billet heating furnaces, is proud to make its contribution to this ambitious project. In the future, all extrusion billets in this plant will be heated in an OTTO JUNKER JuDyMC® (JUnker DYnamic heater MultiCoil) in front of the extrusion press.

In addition to high-temperature tolerance and reliability, this modern inductive billet heating system is characterized by its energy-saving design. In addition, this also permits a longer service life and does not store any heat.
