PUSHER FURNACES

INTRODUCTION

LOI-WESMAN Pusher or Continuous Gas Carburizing Furnaces are manufactured on the basis of designs and drawings of our principals LOI Thermprocess Germany. The LOI Group has access to the experience of Matthias Ludwig, one of its predecessors, the company which supplied the first continuous pusher type gas carburizing furnace in 1953 and since then, LOI has been instrumental in the development of continuous carburizing furnace technology. LOI has set standards for multi-track Pusher-type Furnaces for mass production parts, and Rotary Hearth Furnace with zone separation which is just as simple as it is revolutionary.
LOI furnaces are fully automatic and incorporate several innovative and unique features and are designed offering maximum flexibility, high reproducibility, lower energy costs and greater uptime, and can be customized to meet your exact heat treatment and processing requirements.

Globally, our Pusher Furnaces are being used by automotive giants like Daimler, Volkswagen, MAN and Mercedes Benz in Germany, SCANIA in Sweden and Nanjing Gears, Dong Feng and Volvo in China to name only a few

APPLICATION

Normally, Pusher Furnaces are used for thermo-chemical heat treatment of parts suited for high volumes and less product variety and mix to carry out operations like carburizing and hardening, Annealing, Stress Relieving, Solution Treating and Ageing and the wide parts spectrum which can be processed covers Automotive Components of all kinds, mostly Transmission and Axle components. Gear Components, Shafts, Castings, Drive train components, forgings and engine components etc.
