Global Tier 1 Automotive Forging Supplier Expands North American Aluminum Forging Capabilities

Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. (CAN-ENG) has recently been awarded a contract from a leading Global Tier 1 manufacturer of Lightweight Forged Suspension Components. This exciting new North American project will produce high quality lightweight forged aluminum components for passenger vehicles. The system, comprised of a pre-forging aluminum heating furnace, water quench and continuous aging furnace will be integrated into an automated forging cell that includes specialized material handling components and advance controls. For the heating of aluminum billets prior to forging, the furnace of choice was CAN-ENG’s Patented rotary hearth furnace. This space saving multi-level compact design is ideal for modern automated cells where a reduced footprint of equipment is required while processing parts of varying sizes and cycle times. The customized air flow system is used to produce a large operating range while maintaining rigid uniformity requirements. Post forging, the parts are automatically transferred into a custom designed CAN-ENG water quenching system built to specifically handle the current and future range of parts. CFD Modeling was used to develop the agitation flow across forgings and features automatic cooling and heating. A continuous aging system automatically conveys forgings through using a custom designed material handling system which includes the accumulation of finished parts without direct operator intervention, thereby reducing manpower requirements.

CAN-ENG’s Rotary Furnace System continues to replace the conventional continuous chain/belt style heating systems reducing the overall system footprint, energy consumption, and maintenance requirements.

Can-Eng Furnaces International Ltd. is a global provider and leader of state-of-the-art thermal processing systems. Headquartered in Niagara Falls, ON, Canada, Can-Eng is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company. For further information please contact Can-Eng at scumming@can-eng.com or furnaces@can-eng.com.
