Michigan, USA Captive Heat Treater to Install Cast Link Belt Furnace Line

Cast link belt furnace lines have largely fallen out of favor with most heat treaters around the world, a victim to the many advantages of a mesh belt furnace design. However when it comes to heavy parts there are instances where a cast link belt is the only way to go. In this particular case a fastener manufacturer in Michigan, USA is poised to receive a brand new cast link high temperature furnace from AICHELIN in Austria. The furnace (which weighs 49 tons and is 19 meters long-almost 60 feet) features an investment cast belt, oil quenching and a low temperature temper unit. This photo shows the furnace being loaded on to trucks for shipping.
