Can-Eng Furnaces International Limited was contracted to design and supply a 6,000 lb/hr continuous mesh belt furnace system to a precision automotive and specialty fastener manufacturer in Michigan.

The project marks the fourth Can-Eng mesh belt furnace line for this captive heat treater which, with the completion of this newest line, will be operating within three facilities across the state.

The new, high-volume fastener system features an automated bin-dumping loader, pre- washer, atmosphere-controlled mesh belt hardening system, oil quench, post wash system, temper furnace, in-line 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 heat treater provides themselves access to vital tracking of products’ status, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis, and inventory management. The state-of-the-art system also uses Can-Eng’s Energy Reduction System (ERSTM), significantly lowering energy requirements of the hardening furnace and providing up to a one-third reduction in required atmosphere. The line will also have the capability to bypass the soluble oil system to allow for specialty fasteners requiring post-temper processing to be removed and collected.

Can-Eng Furnaces’ continuous mesh belt heat treatment systems remain the choice of both commercial and captive customers for consistent, reliable, and efficient performance.
