LEWCO recently delivered two furnace cells to a manufacturer specializing in alloy-based materials. Each cell includes a 1,600°F. furnace and an automated loader.  Each furnace is designed to process two 800 lb. wire coils per batch. A special rod over bend heater design provides great temperature uniformity and a fast heat up rate allowing the furnaces to recover quickly.  The furnace and loader are controlled by a PLC with a touchscreen Operator Interface Terminal. The system can be toggled between manual and auto mode. With auto mode, one press of a button controls the entire load/ unload cycle.  The automated loading system helps provide speed and efficiency to improve production and minimize furnace cold time.
