Research and Development

Can-Eng's Technology Development Center

CAN-ENG continues to invest heavily in the research and development of heat processing technologies with a dedicated Research and Development Center on site.

CAN-ENG's Technology Development Center leads improvements and changes in the heat treat industry. 

These programs have three areas of industrial heating focus:

  • Developing new technology
  • Developing new processes
  • Improving and optimizing existing technology

CAN-ENG utilizes existing engineering tools such as 3D modeling and computational fluid dynamic modeling in its research and development initiatives.

Immersion Water Quenching

Process Development Research & Product Testing

Our facility houses the following equipment and capabilities:

Ferrous Applications Testing Equipment

  • High temperature 1300°C (2400°F) furnace for process, product and combustion system development
  • Focus on the development of new immersion and spray quenching techniques
  • Steel long product (bars, tubes, plates) quench and tempering testing and research

Non-Ferrous/Aluminum Casting Testing Equipment

  • Low temperature 150°C to 600°C (300°F to 1100°F) development furnace
  • Simulation of single part handling of aluminum intensive automobile components achieved in CAN-ENG’s Basketless Heat Treatment System BHTS®
  • Single part immersion quenching and spray quenching to achieve uniform part-to-part mechanical property results
  • Precision Air Quenching (PAQ™) for developing processes that provide predictable metallurgical results while optimizing residual stress levels

Other Applications Testing Equipment

  • Fluidized Bed heating reactor for heating and cooling process development
  • Ability to utilize protective process atmospheres when testing
  • Access to material testing laboratories and all equipment is integrated with CAN-ENG’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition and time elapsed thermal imaging systems

Whether you are looking for confirmation of material properties using a new process or trying to optimize your current processes or properties, CAN-ENG has the experience and tools available to support your current and future development needs.
