CAN-ENG awarded contract for speciality automotive fasteners 20 July 2021

CAN-ENG Furnaces International Ltd has recently been awarded a contract from one of the world’s largest producers of high volume, speciality automotive fasteners, supplying a high capacity line of mesh belt fastener heat treatment systems.

CAN-ENG was selected again by this client as a result of the proven system benefits realised through low energy consumption, reduced part mixing, reduced part damage potential and high uptime productivity when compared to conventional cast link furnace designs.

When commissioned, the system will include a computerised vibratory loading system, a rotary phosphate removal washer, a mesh belt hardening furnace, an oil quench system, a post quench wash system, a mesh belt temper furnace, as well as a soluble oil and part containerisation system.

These fully integrated systems will feature CAN-ENG’s Process Enhancement Technology - PET™ System (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System) which provides the client with complete product traceability through the critical thermal process, process data collection, historical event archiving, process variable trend monitoring, scheduling optimisation and energy consumption features which are unique to CAN-ENG systems.

This contract represents a continued partnership with a renowned Italian-based fastener manufacturer, with previously commissioned systems located in the United States, Mexico, Brazil and Italy. These new systems will further increase CAN-ENG’s supply base and penetrate the European Union market following their commissioning early 2022.
