Preco’s Vacuum Impregnation Technology Showcased at CastExpo
St. Louis, MI USA – Preco's HVLV System was exhibited at the 2013 CastExpo by Godfrey & Wing where major automotive OEMs made it a point to visit the booth to see the groundbreaking HVLV lean, front-loading vacuum impregnation system.
The most advanced component impregnation equipment in the world, the HVLV Vacuum Impregnation Dry Vacuum and Positive Pressure Porosity Sealing System uses patented Continuous Flow Impregnation (CFi) dry vacuum and pressure (DVP) technology and is capable of processing up to 15 cycles per hour. Featuring advanced green impregnation technology, the HVLV reduces the time to impregnate by approximately 80% compared with more conventional alternatives and is the solution for 100% pressure tight parts.
This year's CastExpo included more than 450 exhibitors and drew 7,000+ visitors over three days April 6-9, 2013 in St. Louis, Missouri.
