Can-Eng Receives Order for Heat Treatment System
Can-Eng Furnaces (Niagara Falls, N.Y.; http://www.can-eng.com) received an order to design and install a modular heat treatment system to solution treat, precision air quench (PAQ) and artificially age structural thin-wall aluminum automotive castings. The system integrates a multichamber, forced convection heating system to achieve stringent load uniformity requirements, and PAQ is performed in multichamber vestibules. Castings are moved through the system via roller conveyors. The system is controlled via a user-friendly PLC based processor, communicating directly to an operator interface, and can remotely monitor process data. The order follows development work conducted at Can-Eng's R&D facility in Niagara Falls.
