Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd has recently been awarded a contract to design and manufacture two 50,000 lb/hr car bottom furnaces for one of the largest metals and mining companies in the world.
These custom engineered furnaces will support the manufacturing critical metal hot rolling machine components used in the production rolling of high value-added automotive steel sheet and plate.
During the bidding process, Can-Eng was able to identify areas of improvement within the customers existing heat treatment system which allowed Can-Eng to develop a concept that better suited the customers needs while providing faster heat up and improved part uniformity. This in turn will increase efficiency, enhance part quality, and reduce operating costs.
The two systems, although located side by side will utilise completely independent control systems allowing for the ultimate in flexibility for schedule and maintenance. Both furnaces will be interconnected to the larger plant wide system for data acquisition and trending capabilities with Can-Eng’s support.
