Furnaces North America 2016 WEB-FIVES

Furnaces North America (FNA) 2016, hosted in Nashville, Tennessee on October 3-5, attracted over 1,600 attendees from 17 countries. The event is put on by the Metal Trading Institute which is the largest network of heat treaters in the world.

The attendees had the opportunity to participate in:

  • 35 technical sessions
  • A keynote on how to achieve peak performance presented by Walter Bond 
  • A business expo featuring over 160 top suppliers

Fives and its Combustion teams presented North American furnace solutions focusing on temperature uniformity, low emissions and maintenance offerings.  North American solutions guarantee uniformity performance per AMS2750E for furnace Classes I through VI using a variety of proprietary combustion systems and furnace geometry to meet and exceed the customer’s production, efficiency, and environmental needs. Fives then offers maintenance packages to keep furnaces reliable and within specifications for many years of productive service.

Attendees came from automotive, aerospace, military, medical, heavy equipment, tooling, and agriculture. Exhibitors represented every aspect of heat treating including: furnace equipment, accessories, sensors, controls, compliance, chemicals, and oils.  

Overall the show was a great success.  The official press release from FNA 2016 found the feedback from both exhibitors and attendees to be overwhelmingly positive. Many of the attendees stated the 2016 show was “the best Furnaces North America they have attended since the show began in 1995.”
