Koelner Łańcucka Fabryka Śrub of Poland has contracted Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd of Canada to supply a continuous mesh belt atmosphere hardening and tempering system.

The addition of this system will complement Koelner’s facility and their continuous improvement initiatives currently underway in Łańcut, Poland.

The Furnace System will be used in the manufacture of high grade fasteners

Can-Eng's heat treatment system provides predictable metallurgical properties, enhanced process control features, CQI-9 quality initiatives and energy conservation design features. These quality enhancements and design initiatives reflect Can- Eng's commitment to continuous improvement for its Continuous Mesh Belt Atmosphere Furnace Line and the European and Russian Marketplace.

Can-Eng's new large capacity systems represent a significant investment by Koelner to further service its customers in the Automotive, Construction, Mining, Electrical and Ship Building industries located in Europe and North America.

New automated continuous systems include:
− computerized bin discharge and metered part handling system;
− pre and post wash systems complete with dephosphating capability;
− mesh belt hardening system with energy reduction system;
− oil quenching system;
− protective atmosphere mesh belt tempering furnace;
− continuous soluble oil blackening system;
− Siemens based control architecture;
− enhanced supervisory control and data acquisition system;
− integrated atmosphere generator systems.

This project represents one of a number of new continuous mesh belt atmosphere hardening and tempering installations that Can-Eng Furnaces International is currently commissioning for manufacturers around the world
