Aerospace Supplier Orders Titanium Rotary Hearth Forging Furnace


Can-Eng Furnaces International Limited was contracted to commission a turnkey 36-foot-diameter “pancake”-style rotary hearth furnace for a leading North American-based aerospace supplier. The open hearth configuration allows for flexible loading and uniform heating. The furnace will be used in the production of large fixed wing aircraft titanium and nickel-based alloy closed-die structure forgings.

The furnace system features an advanced low NOx combustion system designed to meet the most stringent environmental and temperature uniformity requirements. A special dual-door design provides the customer with significant flexibility for forging to press manipulation within their existing plant layout. The system is capable of processing up to 250,000-pound load capacity in a 24/7 production environment. The furnace system complies with thermal performance requirements laid out in AMS 2750E and integrates a low shrinkage ceramic fiber lining, unique rotating hearth drive, and sealing system. The system is scheduled to be commissioned to the United States in the third quarter of 2017.
