Rebuilt Rotary Furnace Increases Capacity for Canton Forge

An Ohio-based forge which specializes in precise and durable forgings for aerospace, energy, and transportation markets recently commenced production with a rebuilt rotary furnace designed to service and increase heating capacity for some of its largest hammers.

The furnace was rebuilt in-house at Canton Drop Forge (CDF) in Canton, Ohio, and has North American high-velocity tempest burners. Another furnace will be rebuilt in 2018 to increase the heating capacity for its oilfield forging cell.

CDF’s unique ability to rebuild furnaces in-house advances heating capacity and efficiency, producing forgings used in critical applications with zero tolerance for failure. Home to some of the industry’s largest drop forging hammers in its 241,000 square foot manufacturing facility, the company operates 13 forging hammers and can produce forged parts up to 3500 lbs.

In February, Canton Drop Forge was acquired by Park Ohio, an international supply chain management outsourcing company based in Cleveland.
