Can-Eng Furnaces chosen to deliver fastener hardening system


Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. has been contracted to design and commission a complete large-capacity fastener hardening furnace system for a Tier 1 automotive supplier based in Detroit. This contract is a result of successfully delivering multiple systems to this customer over a 20-year period and supports the capacity increases for this fastener manufacturing company, which offers wire processing, heat-treating, coating, and packaging services.

Can-Eng Furnaces International, Ltd. was contracted to see through the design and commissioning for a complete high-quality automotive fastener hardening furnace system that closely integrates a computerized part tracking and metering system, pre-washer, mesh belt hardening furnace, oil quench system, post washer, temper furnace, soluble oil system, endothermic gas generator and level 2 automation system. The contracted system is engineered to produce at a rated capacity of 6,000 lb. (2,700 kg) per hour.

Can-Eng’s customers continue to enjoy the benefits associated with time-tested mesh belt furnace designs that promote soft loading and handling features that minimize part damage and mixing potential. Custom designs provide energy-efficient alternatives to forward-thinking users focused on the lowest cost of ownership procurement. This customization includes reduced energy consumption heating systems, reduced atmosphere consumption, and improved system maintainability and useful service life.

This project is being processed through manufacturing and is planned for commissioning Q1 2019.
