Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. was awarded a contract from an India-based conglomerate to design, manufacture, install and commission an aluminum automotive casting heat-treatment system for its new greenfield North American expansion in South Carolina. This solution-treatment, water-quench and artificial-aging system are arranged to provide T5, T6 and homogenizing processes. The system will service three distinct aluminum product groups with unique treatment cycles.

Can-Eng was chosen for this project largely due to the system’s unique modular design, which offers efficient product, process and production flexibility for the company’s new line of lightweight, die-cast aluminum automotive components.
