Can-Eng supports lightweight structural components 12 September 2019

Can-Eng Furnaces International Limited was recently awarded a contract from a research organisation for the supply of a rapid heating furnace to be used for lightweight hot stamping and formed aluminium automotive component product development.

This organisation will integrate the aluminium sheet heating furnace with existing equipment to support both automotive manufacturers and tier 1 suppliers throughout North America for the development of new safety critical lightweight structural components.

Can-Eng was chosen for this project as it provided significant lightweight, thin walled automotive structural component development experience. The result of this experience and collaboration provides the customer with a unique rapid heating furnace system which offers significant reduction in floor space requirements, flexibility for processing a wide range of product sizes and flexible operating temperatures required for various stamped and formed products. The system will be fully integrated with flexible robotic handling and material handling automation.

Can-Eng Furnaces International is a global provider and leader of state of the art thermal processing systems and is headquartered in Niagara Falls, Canada.
