Summary

The installation of a computer integrated manufacturing furnace is described. There are two identical furnaces. The principal components of the system are: programmable logic controller, Microstar temperature programmer, and an Intercon ionization gauge. Both furnaces communicate with a central processing unit (CPU). Each furnace can also function on its own; if the CPU is not operating, the furnaces can handle themselves. A controller controls the loader and the handler.
