China's Chengdu Yifeng Auto Parts Co., Ltd. orders a gas-fired press hardening furnace for the heat treatment of hot formed steel blanks
In terms of investment and product portfolio, Yifeng is the largest company in light weight Body in White (BIW) components for automotive applications in mainland China. It has installed 28 hot forming lines in China, at its plants in Shanghai, Ningbo, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Foshan, Changsha and Jiaxing.
Currently, the company is experienced increasing demand for hot formed parts from both Volkswagen and Geely, and has decided to invest in additional hot forming lines.
EBNER was selected as supplier for the hot forming furnaces, and was trusted with an order for two hot forming roller-hearth furnaces in September, 2020. The newly-ordered furnaces will be installed in Yifeng’s plant in Chengdu, where eight hot forming lines are being planned.
The hot forming roller-hearth furnaces that were ordered will be used to heat treat uncoated blanks and AlSi coated blanks for BIW parts.
The furnaces are planned to go into operation in July, 2021.
Due to contractually-stipulated delays, press releases may be published at a later date.
