Nutec Bickley walking beam reheating furnaces fabrication provides continuous production rates in custom designs to match customer production and process requirements.

For heating, forging, or stress relief processes in the metals industry.

Walking beam furnaces are essentially state-of-the-art heating furnaces that are extremely efficient for processing large/heavy parts in semi-continuous mode.

The handling system of this type of furnace (fixed beams and walking beams) can be made with hard refractory material, or with high temperature steel alloys in custom shapes according to the size of the product.

Extremely efficient for processing large/heavy parts in semi-continuous mode.

Advantages of Walking Hearth & beam furnaces

  • Pulse firing combustion systems.
  • Most advanced heat recovery systems with recuperative burners performing fuel savings, from 10% up to 50% vs cold air system.
  • Fiber lined sections using the patented “jointless system” with special design to compensate the fiber shrinkage reducing the maintenance considerably.
  • Walking hearth beams with heavy duty precast refractory designs with high resistance.


  • Customized walking beams alloy designs according with size and shape of product.
  • No cooling water requirement.
  • Efficient heating cycles of different parts.


Industries where Walking Hearth & beam furnaces are used

  • Forging/Heating for hot forming
  • Austenitizing, Quench and Temper

Industrial furnaces benefiting from the best technology


With our SCADA systems, the furnace operators are able to have complete control of their heating and thermal treating processes, enhancing efficiency and productivity. Our latest Industry 4.0 developments integrate the latest technology to not only monitor the process, but also to keep the furnace operating in its peak performance with smart maintenance technology. All the data generated during the heating and thermal treating processes is stored in our SCADA system, which then is used to generate reports, graphs and intelligence data, to help customers in their decision making process.
