CAN-ENG supplies system for Mexican tier 1 auto supplier 13 November 2017

CAN-ENG Furnaces International Ltd has recently been awarded a contract to design and build a 1,500lb/hr mesh belt furnace system for the austenitising and molten salt quenching of unique components used in the manufacture of drivetrain systems.

This contract was awarded by a repeat client who has favoured CAN-ENG for several multi-facility heat treatment lines. Incorporating several technological advancements for continuous atmosphere processing of products requiring carbon diffusion and quenching via a molten salt system, known as austempering, the new system includes: Automated bin-dumping loading, mesh belt atmosphere hardening furnace, salt quench, post quench wash and rinse system, mesh belt temper oven, and endothermic gas generator.

This new project is a result of CAN-ENG’s commitment to its customer’s success, years of teamwork, and mutual cooperation, yielding a custom engineering project integrating the customer’s focused needs with CAN-ENG’s robust continuous mesh belt heat treatment system technology. The project is scheduled to be commissioned early 2018 in Mexico’s central automotive manufacturing corridor.
