Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. has been awarded a contract to deliver a second mesh-belt furnace line to a commercial heat treater in the Midwest. Can-Eng commissioned a 4,000-pound/hour mesh-belt furnace system for this customer in 2020. This duplicate 4,000-pound/hour high-capacity furnace line will be installed alongside the previous furnace line in the company’s recently expanded plant. It will be used primarily for processes including carbonitriding and carburizing. The furnace line includes: an automated bin dumping and vibratory part-feeder system; dunk and spray pre-washer; protective atmosphere-controlled mesh-belt hardening system; oil quench; dunk and spray post-wash system; forced recirculation temper furnace; in-line post-cooling system; and Can-Eng’s PET Level 2 SCADA system.
Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems commissioning a mesh-belt annealing and brazing furnace for Bluewater Thermal Solutions, a U.S.-based commercial heat treater. The furnace is installed in Bluewater’s annealing and brazing facility in Coldwater, Mich. The 28-inch-wide, four-zone furnace is designed with a maximum operating temperature of 2100°F (1150°C) and a capacity of 1,600 pounds/hour. It utilizes a blend of nitrogen and hydrogen atmospheres.
Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. prepared the shipment of an 1,800 kg/hour continuous mesh-belt heat-treatment system to a fastener manufacturer in Italy. The system integrates energy-efficient combustion and waste-heat recovery technology. It includes 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 process enhancement technology (PET) system. The PET system provides the user with access to Industry 4.0 features such as product traceability, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis and inventory management. The system will be commissioned in the second quarter of 2022 to meet the company’s capacity expectations.
Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems designed, built and commissioned a 24-inch-wide, three-zone mesh-belt annealing furnace for a Midwest manufacturer of brass components. The furnace has a maximum operating temperature of 1650°F (900°C) and a capacity of 800 pounds/hour. It utilizes a blend of nitrogen and hydrogen atmospheres. The system incorporates an Allen-Bradley PLC and HMI with automated atmosphere and water temperature control and data logging. The integrated dew-point meter ensures precise process control for consistent and reliable part quality.
Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. received a contract to design and supply a 6,000-pound/hour continuous mesh-belt furnace system to a precision automotive and specialty fastener manufacturer located in Michigan. The system includes an atmosphere-controlled mesh-belt hardening system, temper furnace, automated bin-dumping loader, pre-washer, oil quench, post-wash system, in-line soluble oil system, bi-directional conveyor discharge and Can-Eng’s PET Level 2 SCADA system.
SECO/WARWICK will supply an electric mesh-belt furnace to bolt manufacturer Solvera Gawel Technology S.A. The line is designed mainly for carbonitriding and hardening processes and for washing and tempering of high-quality screws and other hardware manufactured near Rzeszów, Poland. The process line, which will be delivered in 2022, will be adapted for operating with endothermic atmosphere supplied from an external endothermic generator. It will consist of a loading module equipped with a weighing system, a main furnace, oil bath (for hardening the workpieces), and vibration and reloading tables. After the hardening process, the workpieces are transferred to a drum washer where they are washed, rinsed and dried.
Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. has been awarded two contracts from a producer of high-volume specialty automotive fasteners. Can-Eng will supply two mesh-belt heat-treatment systems, which will include: computerized vibratory loading system, rotary phosphate removal washer, mesh-belt hardening furnace, oil-quench system, post-quench wash system, mesh-belt temper furnace and part containerization system. The fully integrated systems feature Can-Eng’s PET (process enhancement technology) system, which provides the client with complete product traceability through the thermal process, process data collection, historical event archiving, process variable trend monitoring and scheduling optimization.
Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. designed, shipped and commissioned a 6,000-pound/hour mesh-belt furnace to a processor of safety-critical automotive fasteners. The system includes a computerized loading system, controlled-atmosphere mesh-belt hardening furnace, oil-quench system, post-quench wash system, mesh-belt tempering furnace, soluble oil system and Can-Eng’s PET SCADA system.
