Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd recently was awarded a contract to design and supply a mesh belt heat-treat system with a production capacity of 4,000 lb/hr of high-quality automotive fasteners for a European-based client. The new, high-volume fastener system 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 PETTM Level 2 SCADA system.
By integrating Can-Eng's Level 2 automation, the automotive supplier provides itself access to vital tracking of its products' status, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis, and inventory management. The top-of-the-line system also uses Can-Eng's Energy Reduction System (ERSTM), significantly reducing the energy requirements of the system. The system is scheduled to be commissioned in the last quarter of 2017.
