VFE Autoclaves & Ovens offers a wealth of skills and experience in autoclave refurbishment and upgrades.

Saves time and money

Compared with purchasing a new autoclave, reconditioning an existing machine saves both time and money. We can transform an old, unreliable autoclave into an efficient, modern system featuring the latest technology – and at a fraction of the cost of a new machine.
Extends machine life

Autoclave refurbishment extends a machine’s life and improves productivity. The process can be a matter of replacing outdated components or completely stripping the machine and rebuilding as new.

Improves efficiency

Replacing ageing components, such as cooling units, heating elements and fans with new, more efficient systems helps reduce energy consumption. Optimising heating and cooling performance also enables shorter curing cycles, resulting in higher throughput and reduced running costs for your business.

Upgrade to the latest standards

There is also the potential to upgrade your existing machine to comply with the latest quality and safety regulations, as well as ISO 14001 environmental targets.

In addition, the majority of older autoclave control systems simply cannot satisfy the high standards now required in terms of production quality and historical data, specifically in the aerospace sector. Developed with the specialist needs of this industry in mind, our AMCS (Autoclave Management and Control System) offers a proven solution, providing reliable, accurate and fast processing together with full traceability and a user-friendly interface.
