The first hot ingot mults from a recently commissioned 20 ton/hour rotary hearth reheating furnace were delivered to the 4 Anvil rotary forge at a central Pennsylvania steel works.
The Can-Eng scope of supply included nearly 400 feet of in-line roller conveyor that feeds cut ingot mults from four horizontal band saws to the reheat furnace, a pedestal mounted charging/discharging furnace manipulator, and a high-speed in-line roller conveyor to deliver 2,300°F hot mults to a new rotary forge machine.
Each ingot mult weighs approximately 2.2 tons. The entire cell is located in a completely revamped production hall on the grounds of North America’s oldest forge shop. The new line will replace a walking beam furnace and associated rotary forge machine that has been in production for more than five decades. The new reheat furnace is equipped with energy-saving, low emission regenerative burner technology. Full ramp-up to production capacity is anticipated in Q4 2023.
