CAN-ENG delivers mesh belt heat treatment system 10 June 2022

CAN-ENG has recently prepared the shipment of an 1,800kg/hr continuous mesh belt heat treatment system for a globally recognised speciality fastener producer located in the Piedmont region of Italy.

CAN-ENG continuously demonstrates its commitment to support manufacturers of high-quality, safety critical fasteners around the world, which was the primary reason the company was chosen again for this second capacity expansion. This European project represents its fifth installation for this globally recognised producer of speciality fasteners with operations in Europe, South America, Mexico, and the USA.

CAN-ENG Furnaces International Ltd was chosen to supply this system based on proven reliability, efficiency, and soft part handling features – hallmarks of CAN-ENG’s mesh belt furnace systems. The new, high volume fastener system integrates energy efficient combustion and waste heat recovery technology, an atmosphere controlled mesh belt hardening system, oil quench, a post wash system, temper furnace, soluble oil system, bi-directional conveyor discharge, as well as CAN-ENG’s Process Enhancement Technology (PET™) system.

CAN-ENG’s PET™ system provides the user with access to vital Industry 4.0 features, which includes product traceability, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis, and inventory management.

The state of the art system also integrates CAN-ENG’s Energy Reduction System (ERS™), which significantly reduces the energy requirements. The system will be commissioned in Q2 2022 to meet the clients’ performance and capacity expectations.
