Michigan Fastener Manufacturer Orders 4th Mesh Belt Furnace Line
Recently we had a press release about a fastener manufacturer in Michigan placing an order for what will be their fourth Can Eng Mesh belt furnace line-we can now offer a few more details.
“Can-Eng Furnaces International Limited was recently awarded a contract to design and supply another 6000 lb/hr continuous mesh belt furnace system to a precision automotive and specialty fastener manufacturer located in the state of Michigan. The project marks the fourth Can-Eng Mesh Belt furnace line for this captive heat treater, which with the completion of this newest line will be operating within three facilities across the state.
The new, high-volume fastener system features: an automated bin-dumping loader, pre- washer, atmosphere-controlled mesh belt hardening system, oil quench, post wash system, temper furnace, in-line soluble oil system, bi-directional conveyor discharge, and CAN-ENG’s PETTM Level 2 SCADA system. By integrating CAN-ENG’s Level 2 Automation, the heat treater provides themselves access to vital tracking of products’ status, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis, & inventory management. The state-of-the-art system also utilizes Can-Eng’s Energy Reduction System (ERSTM), significantly lowering energy requirements of the hardening furnace and providing up to a one-third reduction in required atmosphere. The line will also have the capability to bypass the soluble oil system to allow for specialty fasteners requiring post temper processing to be removed and collected.”
