Window and door manufacturer MI Metals has chosen Granco Clark to supply equipment
to its facility in Millen, Ga. A new Granco Clark billet heating system will upgrade
an existing press line at the facility. This is the third heating system upgrade
MI Metals has entrusted to Granco Clark in the last two years.
The billet heating systems consists of a model 57-35-3 hot jet furnace with
the ability to handle log lengths up to 24 feet. A model 6/8 hot log shear will
process 7-inch diameter logs and provide the exact length billet required on every
press cycle, thus reducing scrap, according to a Granco Clark news release.
