Artisan 688 Features


        Side Opening Door


Heat treating requires the removing of some very hot material from the chamber in order to quench. Everything in the chamber is hot, which includes the door. The door on the Artisan 688 swings out and to the side, a full 180° if you need it. This puts the super-heated door well away from you as you concentrate on the work at hand.


The side opening door is an excellent design choice and makes all the difference.

        Swing View Control Enclosure


All temperature controls are fitted into our Swing View Adjustable Enclosure.


The Swing View is a pivoting, swing-up enclosure that allows you to rotate the control to a comfortable viewing and programming angle. Once you're done, lay it back down to see it from across the shop. It's that simple.


The swing view pairs well with TAP touchscreen control as viewing angle can be perfectly aligned. You'll love it.

        Hard Floor Insert


The Artisan 688 is supplied with a refractory shelf that acts as a hard floor. While most work is not destructive to the standard fiber floor, Mokume torque plate fixtures can be rough. The hard floor protects against abrasion and is replaceable.


        Standard Household Plug


The Artisan 688 operates from a standard household plug which makes choice of placement easy and convenient.


        Vented Chamber


The firing chamber of the Artisan 688 is vented and is equipped with a vent plug. Venting is desirable during many heat processes, particularly lost wax casting.


        Multiple Control Options


Evenheat works closely with control manufacturers SDS Industries and Bartlett Instruments to bring you the best in performance, features and programming ease.

The KF Series models are available with the very popular TAP touchscreen control by SDS Industries as well as the Rampmaster 3 and Set-Pro by Bartlett Instrument.
