Can-Eng Furnaces International, Ltd. was awarded a contract to design and manufacture two 50,000-pound load capacity car bottom furnaces for one of the largest metals and mining companies in the world. These custom-engineered furnaces will support the manufacturing of critical metal hot rolling machine components used in the production rolling of high value-added automotive steel sheet and plate. 

During the bidding process, Can-Eng was able to identify areas of improvement within the customer’s existing heat-treatment system which allowed Can-Eng to develop a concept that better suited the customer’s needs while providing faster heat up and improved part uniformity. This, in turn, will increase efficiency, enhance part quality, and reduce operating costs.

The two systems, although located side by side, will use completely independent control systems allowing for the ultimate in flexibility for schedule and maintenance. Both furnaces will be interconnected to the larger plantwide system for data acquisition and trending capabilities with Can-Eng’s support.

Can-Eng Furnaces International is a global provider and leader of state-of-the-art thermal processing systems headquartered in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Can-Eng is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company.
