Can-Eng commissions mesh belt furnace overseas


Can-Eng Furnaces has commissioned a continuous mesh belt heat-treat system for the production of high-quality automotive fasteners in Italy.

This project in the Piedmont region of Italy was one of four installation locations for this globally recognized producer of specialty automotive fasteners that span from Europe, South America, Mexico, and the United States of America.

Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd was chosen to supply its state-of-the-art systems based on proven reliability, efficiency, and soft-part-handling features — hallmarks of Can-Eng’s mesh belt furnace systems. The new, high-volume fastener system features energy efficient combustion and waste heat recovery systems, atmosphere-controlled mesh belt hardening system, oil quench, post wash system, temper furnace, soluble oil system, bi-directional conveyor discharge, and Can-Eng’s Level 2 SCADA system. Can-Eng’s PET™ system provides the user with access to vital Industry 4.0 data which includes product traceability, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis, and inventory management.

The top-of-the-line system also integrates Can-Eng’s Energy Reduction System (ERS™) which significantly reduces the energy requirements of the system. The system was commissioned Q4 2018 and has met and exceeded the clients’ performance expectations.

Through proven results, Can-Eng Furnaces’ continuous mesh belt heat-treatment systems remain an integral technology for processing high quality automotive fasteners. As the demands of the automotive industry continue to grow, Can-Eng’s Mesh Belt heat-treatment systems repeatedly demonstrate their capability of meeting and exceeding processing standards that include AIAG CQI-9 requirements.
