Gasbarre Supplies 48” Wide Belt Annealing Furnace to a World Leading Fully-Integrated Manufacturer

Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems recently manufactured and commissioned a 48” wide belt, electric, annealing furnace for a world leading manufacturer. This is the 2nd furnace Gasbarre has supplied this company. The customer chose Gasbarre again because of the quality and reliability of the first furnace. The first furnace provided unparalleled up time with minimal downtime needed for maintenance.  This new system was designed to meet the customer’s strict process requirements. The furnace came equipped with 3 heating zones that can heat up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Our customer required a target belt speed of 10 inches per minute in addition to 2000lbs per hour and we were able to achieve all those goals. To aid with unattended loading and offloading Gasbarre designed a special automated parts feeder and a Pneumatic unload mechanism.  The furnace was equipped with an Allen Bradley Panelview HMI for complete furnace control and data tracking and trending.
