Basketless Heat Treatment System (BHTS®)

Designed to Exploit the Benefits of Lean Manufacturing Strategies

CAN-ENG’s BHTS® eliminates the need for product conveying baskets, carriers, trays or fixtures which require continuous repairs and replacement, reducing capital costs and greatly reducing energy consumption requirements.  With robotic automation, these systems can be seamlessly integrated into the overall manufacturing process to provide a lean manufacturing cell that eliminates work in process inventories and sources of waste. 

The evolution of vehicle design has put increasing demands on manufacturers to reduce costs and increase product quality. CAN-ENG’s new Basketless Heat Treatment System has been engineered to meet these ongoing and ever increasing demands.
