Can-Eng Installs Heat Treatment System
May 17, 2006
Can-Eng Furnaces (Niagara Falls, N.Y.; http://www.can-eng.com) designed and commissioned a continuous T-6 heat-treatment system at a Tier 1 supplier of aluminum castings in the Midwest. The system will be used to process safety critical cast aluminum automotive suspension components. This new design provides solution treat, rapid quench transfer, quench media control, and artificial age requirements for high-volume aluminum castings. The system is controlled by a PLC-based processor, communicating directly to an operator interface, and is capable of monitoring process data remotely.
