We’ve come a long way . . . and have finally found our place. We’re proud to be
part of the SPX family of brands and to represent it with our brand new logo.
Just how far have we come over the years? Well, it all started in 1912, when Lindberg
was founded as Replaceable Heating Elements in New York. Edwin Smalley and August
& Walter Eimer named the company after their patented replaceable heating element
for research furnace applications.
From there, we registered the Hevi-Duty trademark, which became an integral part
of our company name. We were Hevi-Duty Electric Company, then Hevi-Duty Heating
Equipment Division, and then Lindberg/Hevi-Duty. During that time our headquarters
jumped around, from New York to Wisconsin and finally, Michigan.
Somehow, the Lindberg name stuck, and we consolidated to industrial furnace operations
in Watertown, Michigan, and in 2005, consolidated with MPH Industries to become
what is now Lindberg/MPH.
Despite our many transformations, we’ve held on to a long-standing reputation as
the single-source supplier for the heat treating industry. Now, with more than 100
years of service under our belt, we’re proud to boost that reputation by belonging
to this great team of manufacturers known as SPX. We’ve come a long way, and look
forward to the journey ahead of us.
Lindberg/MPH is uniquely qualified
to perform your Temperature Uniformity Surveys (TUS). In addition to being trained
in AMS 2750E, we are also factory-trained furnace experts, with a combined 100+
years in heat treating furnace repairs.
Capable of a full range of services, our technicians not only have specialized training
in performing TUS, but are also able to evaluate your furnace prior to performing
the surveys. They can recommend and/or repair items that may prevent the furnace
from qualifying for the desired furnace class. With factory-trained furnace experts
on your side throughout the process, many furnaces which may have failed to pass
AMS 2750E specifications are now able to meet the stringent standard specifications.
Lindberg/MPH is also pleased to announce that we will be offering temperature controller
calibration contracts. With the growing need for documentation and process control,
it is essential to have your temperature controller and recorders calibrated each
quarter, as outlined in many of the standards and by the external auditors. Lindberg/MPH
can calibrate these devices according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Traceable
calibration documents and certification documents are submitted for each instrument,
along with calibration stickers noting the calibration date, due date, name of the
technician and any restrictions.
