Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems commissioned a 48” belt annealing furnace for a global manufacturer. The furnace is equipped with three heating zones that can heat up to 1200°F (650°C). The company required a target belt speed of 10 in/in and 2,000 lb/hr, which were achieved.

To aid with unattended loading and offloading, Gasbarre designed an automated parts feeder and a pneumatic unload mechanism. The furnace also includes an Allen-Bradley PanelView HMI for furnace control and data tracking and trending. 

This is the second furnace Gasbarre has supplied to this company.
