“A feasibility study with various scenarios for furnace modification was conducted to find the best tailor-made solution to meet the customer’s challenging requirements. The project targets were fulfilled thanks to the implementation of advanced non-oxidizing furnace technologies, optimized modifications and record line stoppage duration,” said the speaker Xavier Cluzel, Deputy Vice President, Sales & Marketing of Fives DMS, one of Fives’ subsidiaries.

“Today, the coating line records the outstanding performance: up to 45% of production increase, 50% reduction in production loss and H2 gas consumption divided by 4,” he concluded.
