Can-Eng Furnaces International Limited of Niagara Falls, N.Y., has installed and commissioned a high-volume T-5 basketless heat-treatment system (BHTS) for an automobile manufacturer located in the southeastern United States. Can-Eng’s BHTS provides this engine manufacturer with a significant reduction in energy consumption and floor-space requirements over conventional roller hearth or batch heat-treatment systems.

Can-Eng’s BHTS incorporates a unique material-handling system that provides for single-piece product flow. This transfers components through the system without the use of baskets, carriers or trays.
