Can-Eng Furnaces Installs Automobile Structural Component Heat Treatment System
Can-Eng Furnaces (Niagara Falls, N.Y.; http://www.can-eng.com) designed and installed an automated aluminum bumper heat treatment system. The system is specifically designed around the thermal processing needs of the customer's thin-walled bumper profile. The system integrates a multi-zone, forced convection, indirect heating system to achieve stringent load uniformity requirements. The product is conveyed through the system by a chain conveyor transfer system, making it safe and reliable for the operator involved. The system is controlled by a user-friendly PLC-based processor, communicating directly to an operator interface and can remotely monitor process data.
