Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. has been contracted by Weber Metals Inc. to design, manufacture and commission an aluminum conveyor forging furnace. The automated furnace system will heat aluminum-alloy preforms and billets prior to forging at Weber Metals’ Long Beach, Calif., facility. Can-Eng was selected for this project because of its demonstrated capabilities in the design and development of large-capacity forging furnaces for the aerospace industry. The furnace is part of Weber Metals’ 60,000-ton press expansion project, which will allow the company to manufacture larger and lighter forgings utilizing more advanced materials for global applications.
