Can-Eng Furnaces International, Ltd. recently delivered a high-capacity mesh belt heat-treatment furnace line to Gallos Metal Solutions Inc., Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Specializing in continuous mesh belt atmosphere heat treatment, Gallos selected Can-Eng to provide a custom-engineered continuous atmosphere heat-treating system to be used primarily for demanding processing including carbonitriding and carburizing, while allowing for neutral heat treatment with a production capacity up to 4000 lb/hr. This furnace line is part of Gallos’ massive plant expansion and modernization project, which has more than doubled the existing plant square footage, increased capacity, and added automation.
Can-Eng’s highly engineered and custom system allows for an increase in usable hearth area to provide high-volume processing when running products requiring carbon diffusion and lighter belt loading.
This new capacity addition features a computerized controlled automated bin dumping and vibratory part feeder system, dunk and spray pre-washer, protective atmosphere-controlled mesh belt hardening system, oil quench, dunk and spray post wash system, forced recirculation temper furnace, in-line post cooling system, and Can-Eng’s PETTM Level 2 SCADA system. By integrating Can-Eng’s Level 2 Automation, Gallos provides access to vital tracking of products’ status, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis, and inventory management.
This project marks the fourth Can-Eng mesh belt furnace line to be in operation at this facility.
