Hood-type furnace systems are deployed when extremely heavy and large batches must be heat-treated.
They are deployed particularly for heat treatment processes, such as gas carburising, carbonitriding and annealing. Combined with the relevant peripheral equipment,
such as tempering furnaces, cooling stations and cooling manipulators, washing units, transportation and storage zones, as well as process visualisation and documentation,
fully automated operation is feasible in this type of furnace, too.
