Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. was awarded a contract from a European company to design and supply a mesh-belt heat-treatment system with a production capacity of 4,000 pounds/hour of high-quality automotive fasteners. The high-volume system features an atmosphere-controlled mesh-belt hardening system, oil quench, post-wash system, temper furnace, soluble oil system, bi-directional conveyor discharge and Can-Eng’s PET Level 2 SCADA system. Commissioning is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017.
By integrating Can-Eng’s Level 2 automation, the automotive supplier provides itself access to vital tracking of product status, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis and inventory management. The heat-treatment system also utilizes Can-Eng’s Energy Reduction System (ERS), which significantly reduces energy requirements.
