North American Manufacturer Invests in New Quench & Temper System

“Can-Eng Furnaces International Limited was recently contracted to engineer and commission a Continuous Quench and Temper Furnace System for a North American producer of mining, construction, and materials handling products.  The purchase of this equipment is part of a larger plant expansion and initiative to bring foreign outsourced manufacturing in house.  This move is not only to improve part quality but also to help eliminate overall shipping costs and reduce supply chain issues which have been plaguing many industries over the past couple of years.

This equipment will be part of an automated manufacturing cell and fed automatically from upstream handling equipment. Special considerations have been made to precisely control the quench temperature to reduce hardness variations and improve overall part quality.  The multizone belt style temper furnace employs high efficiency natural gas fired heating and recirculation systems which have been proven to provide the ultimate in temperature uniformity in even the most demanding of applications.  All pieces of equipment are accessible for control and monitoring through the equipment’s Can-Eng engineered control system which utilizes an Allen Bradly PLC and HMI.

Can-Eng Furnaces International, Ltd. is a global provider and leader in the design of state-of-the-art thermal processing systems. Headquartered in Niagara Falls, ON, Canada, Can-Eng is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company. For further information please contact Can-Eng at [email protected] or [email protected].”
