Global Fastener Manufacturer Purchases New AFC-Holcroft Mesh Belt Furnace

“A Midwestern facility of a US-based leader in the manufacture of safety-critical fasteners and assembly solutions has purchased a new MB48-120 mesh belt furnace from AFC-Holcroft. The new equipment will replace an older AFC-Holcroft installation. The new mesh belt furnace will integrate with existing companion equipment such as a loading system, pre- and post-wash systems, oil quench and temper furnace. The new mesh belt furnace will be used in the production of metal fasteners. AFC-Holcroft mesh belt lines can be customized with a variety of options, including oil and salt quenching. These systems also include the latest energy saving technologies to reduce atmosphere and gas consumption. Delivery and start-up of the new equipment are expected in the first quarter of 2019.”
