Tenova Core has been contracted to provide the turnkey supply of an STC® (short time cycle) furnace to Grand Blanc Processing’s wire-processing facility in Holly, Mich. The 26-metric-ton batch STC furnace will be used to spheroidize anneal and stress relieve Grand Blanc’s high-quality wire products. Tenova Core will also design and supply the complete control and automation package, which will feature a Level 1 and Level 2 control system. The energy-efficient furnace, which is expected to start up by the end of the year, provides low product variability and superior temperature uniformity. This is the second STC furnace installation at this facility.
